Announcer said: The American wrestled HARD...

Postby D3 for LU » Sun Aug 21, 2016 9:09 am

... for a cruel result.
:roll: Yeah, Molinaro and the Hair-Cut lbTF to Azgarov of AZE, 10-0 w/ a few sec.left in the 2nd pd.
(I could see Azgarov breathing a bit "hard" as he walked off the mat. He worked hard in pushing FM out.)
Hmm, The Tank's hash-tag line should read: "ALLISEEISTHEOUTOFBOUNDSLINE" :wink:

Though, I have to say that Snyder was workman-like in his win vs the Cuban... wasn't a push-over by any means.

Synder won his QF bout, and will be wrestling next on mat A.
Meanwhile... the Hair Cut is in repechage, due to Azgarov winning his bout against world champ Chamizo, 7-4.

The Hair Cut is wrestling his repechage bout against the Ukrainian... leading 3-0.
Starting the 2nd pd... Ukrainian in on Molinaro... twisted his ankle- leg-lace style but gets 1pt.
Molinaro in pain... we go on. Ukraine in on a TD leads 5-4... Molinaro in on a TD, retakes the lead 6-5.
Another TD seals the deal... The Hair Cut wrestles for Bronze vs Italy's Chamizo (Very Tall Order for FM.)

If you can, go on the nbcolympics site... hit the drop down menu for all sports and go to wrestling.
You should be able to see that match, either by itself OR on, I believe, matA feed... should be the last match there.

The Hair Cut...

Postby D3 for LU » Sun Aug 21, 2016 1:04 pm

...pulled the trigger too late, and he gets nothing but 5th place for the effort.
(He should of scored earlier but was in protect the lead mode...which resulted in giving up a TD... Chamizo was in reverse mode afterwards.)
Chamizo caressed the little Hair Cut for his try at bronze. (Bzzt, aw, too bad. Nice Try. Thankew for playing... )
Oh well... :roll:

Bad Form, BAD FORM...

@ 65Kg... The Mongolian was ahead by a point and started to celebrate prematurely (refusing to engage)...resulted in a penalty and caution point, tieing the bout @7 all w/ Uzbekistani wrestler winning on tiebreaker.
Pandemonium broke out w/ the Mongolian coaches ripping off their clothes off. :shock:
(Only thing missing was oil on their bodies... :? )
Hooboy! :P
