    I wonder if Albiev and Khustov will reverse the trend... my picks, coming form someone who knows very little about greco:

    55: Mankiev
    60: Albiev
    66: Mansurov
    74: Lester
    84: El Fatah (if he's still competing, if not I'll pick Mishine)
    96: Khustov
    120: Baroev
    I got Albiev, Khustov, and Mishin winning gold for sure. No one will stop them. Unsure about Mankiev. He will defintely medal for sure, but he's just not as good as his brother. Hopefully he proves me wrong.

    Is it a different Mankiev? If so I'm changing my pick to Sourian

    Mishine got man handled by El Fatah a few years back but apparently the Egyptian's not competing so I'll stick with the russian for my pick.

    Not sure this is the right thread for this comment, but the head-case-ness that people were mentioning about Garzon runs through the entire cuban lineup, I think (Lopez excepted, of course). They're good wrestlers alright but they can't seem to beat the best of the best... how many silver and bronze medals to Garzon, Fundora, Quintana Romero and Rodriguez have? And how many gold? They seem to lose in ugly or suprising ways too, it's not like Cuba just sucks at the clinch or something. I dunno what the ratio of technical weakness to mental weakness to losing matches on purpose is, but something's going on with that team and has been for a while IMO.
