On this day, Japan was stronger, quicker and the better hand fighter. Bummer. I hope Gray is pulled back in. 

Another match in which a couple of hard sprawls might've won. The chest wrap attempts failed both times. 

I am far from the wrestling mind that a lot of these athletes and coaches are, but it would seem to me, there needs to be a more concerted effort to utilize baseline defense and save the chest wraps for when they are "really there" or you "really need it."  A go behind is 2 points and so is a chest wrap from the knees.  Kendall Cross, the funkiest of all our Olympic champs once said that he really started to get better when he was convinced to use baseline D first and save the funk for when it was really there.

Hildebrandt up 8-3 with 1M0S (60S) remaining.  Some sort of caution called - didn't see it.  Azera coaches challenging and refs calling for the Azera to be put down in parterre.

The official was telling the Azeri to open up after Hildebrandt's takedown - she was controlling hands. She didn't listen, so caution + 1

This Azera is legit, btw guys.  She's like a 10 time Worlds/Olympic medalist.  Six worlds and four Olympics.

- 2 Gold
- 5 Silver
- 3 Bronze

I would have her on my team any day. She fought like a dog when down, and she is lightening quick. Of course, she'd be JV behind Hildebrandt. Still, I hope Sarah brings her through repechage.
