  1. I had never really gotten into wrestling in the past, but on Thursday a wrestler came to judo practise and it peaked my interest. I checked out some freestyle wrestling matches and thought they looked amazing! Some really insane moves they pull off!

    • thanks, yes, in my club a similiar situation. we also have a former high school and college wrestler. He is dynamic and explosive, so I asked him and he explained he has be wrestling done it 16 years. He adds a different dimension to the throws. good stuff.

  2. Extremely nice to see Jordan putting his arm around his fellow wrestler from Iran. The Olympics are supposed to be about individual achievement and people coming together in peace. He and Mr. Goudarizi exemplify the truth that individuals are not the problem, for they can come together and work together to promote their shared interests. The problem is with countries and governments who only want war. Thank you Jordan. The image from behind with the arms of you and your Iranian competitor around each other with your national jackets on has been shared far and wide by those who want peace over war and the destruction is brings.
