as it turns out, the length didn't matter much at all. Helen never in any trouble after that turn attempt turned into 2 points for Aliyeva.Helen forces a step out. 3-2.
Goes to break with Helen up 3-2. Helen looks to be the better wrestler, but length on Aliyeva seems to be a problem for her
Read on UWW's Twitter (X) that he flew back to Moscow last night to get his neck checked out for injuryI was wondering if he would show up. I won't say what I'm thinking, but seems there may be more to Sadulaev looking so out of shape and performing that way than just eating too many potatoes with his meals.
Agreed. We knew he was a bad dude, but he rarely finished a match the way he started. Great tourney by him. His beard game is also strong.Obviously I root for the American wrestlers, but it's insanely cool to see Musukaev finally put it all together. He always had the ability, he would just fall apart so quickly and have absolutely no stamina. He changed that this year and showed what he can do with a full gas tank.
There's always hope, but it was pretty much a forgone conclusion. Japan had quite a head start, but our Ladies are getting there.Safe to say Japan will win women's team title looking at what is out there already. Up by 30 points in a rough, but relatively accurate look at the current point standings.
