    As a web host I should think you would know better than to feed trolls.

    I see. Because there is no doubt that the result would be the same every time they wrestled. I assume you are thinking that Slay would have beat Saitiev at any point during the 2000 Olympics?

    He was calling me a troll I think. No hard feelings.

    No I meant if it were that exact match but at any time but the finals. Heck if it were the first match, Slay would not win any medals. So you see, Leipold's victories anywhere but in the finals were legitimate. Nobody else that lost to Leipold got a 2nd chance. I guess Jesus set up these rules as well.

    The point is that he didn't actually win the medal on the mat. He won it because Leipold tested positive for Nandrolone. Now he's saying his faith helped him win the Gold, which is a lie.

    If he were to say his faith provided him with the motivation to make the Olympic Team and become among one of the top wrestlers in the World I'd buy that. But to say his faith helped him win the Gold medal is just not true. It sounds like semantics but I take this stuff pretty seriously. He didn't win the Gold on the mat. He lost. Leipold had to relinquish his medal. We can talk about all the stuff about Leipold cheating and Moon not getting a fair shot at the Gold but all this aside, Slay actually came home with a Silver medal.
    It's an argument in semantics. He was the only guy who made the FInals who didn't cheat. I don't think God "grants medals" or anything of the like, but perhaps it'll help put you in position. Using of steroids indicates a weakness of the mind and a willingness to give into temptation. I'm sure (or I hope) what he means is that he thinks that God put him in position to be the best natural athlete in his weight class.

    Once again, completely abandoning logic. THe match was in the Olympic finals, with all the outside stuff that comes along with it. Matches don't play out the exact same way between guys, and it's completely illogical to assume this result would completely move across to any hypothetical match.

    It is also completely illogical to think Slay would beat him any other time.

    Why? He beat a superior wrestler just that tournament. Maybe Slay panicked being in the Olympic FInals, whereas Leipold already had experience on a similar large stage. Without that pressure, maybe it completely changes the match.
