Re: New Freestyle Rules from FILA
That sounds like an effort to encourage wrestlers who are winning to keep being aggressive instead of stalling. I get the idea, but I don't think it will work. Scoring a 3 or 5point move at that level is difficult enough to do once. The risk isn't really worth it at that point. Unless it's almost like a continuous move and if so, they would have probably gone for it anyway.

I don't know if anyone with FILA actually competed or not. Seems like a good idea to get competitors views. Do they?
