I believe this was Germany's first medal since 1999, not positive on that though.
Think the last medalist was Leipold winning gold in 2000 over Slay before having it stripped for doping. Before that he medaled a few times, was frequently on the receiving end of Saitiev beatings
Gilman gets it done!!
Thomas Gilman, WORLD CHAMPION!!!
Finishes 2nd and 3rd at NCAAs, finishes 2nd at worlds, finishes 3rd at the olympics, and now he rounds out his trophy case with a world gold medal. Love it.
JB about to become the 14th Freestyle Wrestler in history to win 6 combined World/Olympic golds.
It is done.
And only the 4th of the modern Era, post Soviet breakup, truly the American GOAT in my mind
So is he done after this or does he go 1 more cycle? What’s the typical age range for wrestling?
Americans tend to run a bit longer as the folkstylr transition takes some time for most...but he's past that age for all but most intense stalwarts like Baumgartner
I think he will continue through Paris
I just was looking up his accomplishments and I forget what happened at the 2016 Olympics?
I’m always surprised when I look up J’dens age and he’s only 26. He looks so old.
Cox gets the tech for his 3rd bronze to go along with his 2 golds.
He had a bad day.
Truly unbelievable but the team title will come down to Snyder-Sadulaev for the THIRD time.
Is that tomorrow afternoon?
I don’t know the match order with the split Women’s/Men’s day but the medal rounds start at Noon Eastern. Could be the 6th match or 12th of that session.
yes, medal matches start at noon ET and it will be the sixth match. So you're probably looking at a little after 1 PM ET.
Snyder/Sadulev for the team title. Big time match.
Sadulaev is unreal.
snyder really never came close to scoring on sadulaev.
That's why he's the best in the world I guess.
Russia wins the team title.
The Tank is coming for that greatest of all-time spot, and I can’t see anything that will slow him down at this point. Snyder just doesn’t have anything for him at this point, his offense just hasn’t progressed and Sadulaev is just flat better.
Russia’s B+(plus because Sadulaev is a letter grade on his damn own) just good enough to pip the A teams from the US and Iran, but it was a battle. The big 3 completely dominated this tournament
Russian Wrestling Federation*
Russia is banned iirc
He's been on the wrestling scene for 8-9 years now and he's lost twice--once in his first ever senior level match, and once to a 3x world champion up TWO weight classes.
It's honestly insane that Snyder even beat him once.
Was RFW ineligible to win the team trophy? Ol' Willie is having a melty that they were given the team trophy.
So Japan women sent their B team, who are all age level medalist, and appear to have dominated. Tamyra got pinned in the semi’s.
That was brutal, she’s been killing everyone and got a little over aggressive. Japan women’s wrestling is on another level, their B team straight dominated. Even Russian men’s freestyle ain’t that deep
Adeline Gray continues to dominate. Pinned her way through the field.
Suriano back to PSU sounds like a done deal. Gonna be real interesting to see how Iowa/PSU turns out this season...
Gonna try to get tickets for this
Got 7. Can’t wait
He dropping to 125?
57kg: Gilman over Atri/Sarlak - Gilman just beat both these guys soundly on the biggest stage. Don't see any reason why it would be different in the USA.
61kg: Fix over Amouzad or Amouzad over Tomasello - If Fix can't go because he chooses to wrestle DeSanto instead and can't do both, then Tomasello seems like the obvious fill-in.
65kg: Yazdani vs ??? - No idea who goes here. JO seems like the obvious guy if he can make 65 but I think he's permanently in that 70-74 zone. Yianni has a dual. Zain next man up?
70kg: Elahi vs ??? - James Green or JO probably here, with Pantaleo as another option. JO seems like an obvious choice for this card though, he has to be on it, right?
74kg: Dake over Hosseinkhani/Emami - Dake already beat Hosseinkhani so take that fwiw, but I don't think it matters who Iran sends here.
79kg: JB over Nokodhi - Let's run it back! Don't see anything going differently though.
86kg: DT vs HYC - LFG! Not gonna make a prediction, just gonna enjoy this one.
92kg: Cox vs Ghasempour - The 4th straight rematch from an olympic/worlds match. I think Cox takes this one.
97kg: Snyder vs ??? - Iran could send Goleij, Shabani, or Mohammadian. Goleij would be an immediate rematch of that last second semi win. Snyder beat Shabani in the Dogu finals and lost to Mohammadian at the Pellicone.
125kg: The one we've all been waiting for! For like 2 weeks. I get the feeling it doesn't happen, but if it does, I'm going with Zare I think, even though I said two years ago I would never pick against Gable in a wrestling match ever again. I just don't know where his head is going to be at.

I know I have said this before but Eirman being able to wrestle still seems absurd. He has old man strength now.
Eirman and kemerer both
Can't forget Micic either
google tells me he wins started in 2014. Eirman and Kemerer 2015.
Micic is going into his 8th year
Currently #3 in the c/o 2023, took a TB2 loss to Gabe Arnold at WNO but still probably top 10 nationally.
Good chance we'll see him very early in his career, might have to start as a true freshman.
Appears to be subtweeting Vincent Kilkeary, top 20 C/O 2023 recruit from same high school as Luke Pletcher and good friends with new commit Welsh.
