    You are so obnoxious. It is no wonder you were sent over to the USA.

    Again, he makes a good point. 3 of our Olympians recently lost to Russian Juniors.

    There was a dual last year in Nalchik where their World Team wrestled our Word Team (maybe one or two were missing) and I don't think we won a match.

    When talking about Russian “juniors”, don't forget that 99,99% of the top juinors of Russia (and some other postsoviet states) are with fake age.
    Their real age = registred age + 1 up to 4 years (usually 2 years).
    MANY of the Russian participants at junior euros/worlds are over 20. That means – they are more experienced.

    There is no hard core evidence about age problems. If there were evidence, FILA would say something. akzent is just blowing smoke about rumors and stuff. Perhaps occasionally this might happen but I would not generalize like that.

    In the hotel room of a Russian wrestler (he will represent an Asian country in Beijing) my own eyes saw his 3 different passports ? each one for a particular purpose.

    On the Russian forum, yesterday & today the Russian fans discussed (and laughed) the fake age of the Russian wrestlers at the jr. worlds in Istanbul. Note that they (fans and wrestlers) know each other well. Some of them went in one and the same school in Dagestan or Ossetia.

    Evidence? One of the fans said where evidence can be found: on-line in the Russian ?odnocklasniki? (classmates) database. Everyone who is registered (Big, are you?) can check there when the schoolboys (now members of the Russian Jr. world team) were born. There are differences between the years of birth in this database and in the database of FILA.
