53kg- Fujinami(In the finals tomorrow night)

57kg- Sakurai(2023 World Champion)

62kg- Motoki(In the finals tomorrow night)

68kg-Ishii if she wins bronze tomorrow night

76kg- Kagami(2023 World Champion)

Just saw the Greco draws. USA got hosed. We didn't draw an opponent from Mexico at any weight. I don't see how they expect us to build confidence without winning matches. Rigged

Flo doesn't have them up yet.  Lame.

I actually think the three ILLINOIS wrestlers have good draws. They all get winnable matches in the first round.

Then, for Kamal Bey, his toughest opponent before the semifinals is a guy he doubled up at the last ranking series tournament. That fellow is the #1 seed, but Bey has shown he can beat him.

Joe Rau has a guy in the first round that he pinned two years ago, and Zac Braunagel gets a young fellow who is 1-4 in age-group Asian Championships. But the best part of their draws is their second round matches.

They both get Greco legends. So, they either shock the world or have a nice chance for repechage. Remember, though, they don't call me Homelander for nothing!

Thank you for assessing the draws instead of just making a joke about how we can only beat Mexico (as I did)

Colton Schultz with the pin! To the poster above who asked about medal threats from the USA, well, in my non-expert opinion, it is the two winners on the day so far: Bey and Schultz. 

They call it a tech fall 9-1 and not a pin. Schultz was stronger and had a better gas tank than his opponent. 

One thing I really dislike about Greco is that they will put both men down in the match, even in cases like this when Schultz so obviously dominated the action.

Brady Koontz up 7-0 at the break. He's comically taller than his Korean foe. 

Koontz called for passivity when he was anything but. That's my hang-up again with Greco. The Korean gets that point and a gut. Brady almost pins the over-eager tiny man. 

7-3 win for Koontz!

Really, really nice day so far for the beacon of Democracy in the World!
