    Where do you think they will go? The only remaining Golden Grand Prix is in July in Baku.
    08-10 Baku AZE Golden Grand Prix Final Heydar Aliyev Memorial - Senior
    Or:
    23-24 Kiev UKR International Tournament Outstanding Ukrainian Wrestlers' Memorial - Senior
    The Canada Cup is in Guelph in July. ;^)

    I admit I don't know international wrestling history. So, at the cost of sounding stupid (again) I have to ask this question. Does this rule also apply to Herbert and Sanderson? I think Herbert took second in the World's, right? Wouldn't that qualify him for this rule or does an Olympic Medal cancel that out no matter how long ago it was?

    No you only qualify through winning one of the five major international tournaments that our wrestlers competed at on international tours. We have 40 wrestlers competing at these tournaments, and only Bunch won a tournament, so it's not something that will be happening that often anytime soon. I think there's also something about medaling at the previous Worlds but in Herbert's case it was two years ago.

    Well he was a University World Silver Medalist. At the senior level, I don't think he has any experience, let alone success.

    I think that's probably the case, but Humphrey might not be too far behind. He's also beaten Coleman Scott multiple times this year and beat Zadick at the Open. He's improved a lot in the last year (he was losing to all three of those guys a year ago) and if he's not our best, he definitely deserves to be called our second best.

    This tournament should help answer your question.
