    Default Tyrone Lewis is one of the best in the world

    I get amused every time reading these articles:

    ?Ben Askren, there?s something different about him that allows him to compete at a high level,? Cormier said. ?Being around him for the first time, I understand that he has a champion?s heart. He is determined to be as good as he can be. He?s special. Tyrone Lewis is one of the best wrestlers in the World. For Ben to beat Tyrone three times in a row tells me he is ready.?

    Our No. 1 goal was to rebuild our base conditioning.

    The team trained at Arizona State University. Among the workouts was a tough conditioning session up a hill in Arizona. That workout included a number of grueling sprints up the incline there.

    It was a high volume type of camp where we really got our conditioning built up. We ran the hill and we also did a speed training workout.



    I would be impressed if the Iranians did this but the Americans have a good conditioning already.

    Unless Askren miraculously improves between trials and Olympics, I don't see more than 2 wins out of him at Olympics which will put him at a top 10 finish.

    But Lewis one of the best in the world? Who has Lewis beaten outside USA?

    "One of the best in the World" is relative. What is the criteria? He may not be top 5, but maybe top 30 or 40? It's all relative.

    How is Askren ready by beating someone who is top 30 in the world then?

    By the way, another reason Russians might make fun of Askren is because "Ben" is a nickname for penis in Russian.

    For someone who is Russian, I find it hard that you don't understand the purpose of Propoganda.
