2023 World Wrestling tournament...


D3 for LU

Recommended Posts

I've finished up a post about the ILLINOIS guys going Greco in the next few days. The brackets are out. I have a question: Zac Braunagel faces a first round opponent named Annamammedow from Turkmenistan at 87 kilos. There is not a wrestler by that name ranked in the top 100 by UWW at 87, 82 or 97 kg. 

I also checked the google and youtube and zilch. Finally, I translated "Wrestling Greco Annamammedow" into the Turkmen language (göreş Annamammedow grek) and got bupkis. Anybody know this guy?

I'm sure people might have noticed with Japan's WFS team, but their entire team are comprised of their #1s and #2s from the Olympic weights.  All of the non-Olympic weight team members lost to the Olympic weight members in their version of the WTT.  In almost every case, the wins were razor thin with short time/almost at the buzzer.  The only exceptions to that were 50kg and 53kg.

Why don't we see rent-a-wrestler type stuff happening with Japan like the Russian wrestlers in MFS? Japan is so stacked, it's hard to imagine other countries not wanting to poach some of that. Is it just a lack of local support elsewhere for WFS?

Japan has respect and honor for their system.
