    USA wrestlers at olympics...blah

    so far nothing good happening...all wrestlers are out of today's competition

    The U.S. is now 4-6 in Greco-Roman competition heading into the final day for that style of wrestling.

    There are a few different reasons. For one, the bracket is drawn that way. Losers of early matches go into repechage, or what is often called consolations or wrestlebacks in the U.S. The winners of the repechage brackets face the losers of the semifinals for the two bronzes.
    Two, it's about timing. Squeezing in another match would make it more difficult to get each weight class done in one day.
    In a combat sport where head-to-head combat is part of the game, it seems like a no-brainer to let the two bronze medalists compete, but getting it done in one day would be tough.

    Hester still alive today and has opportunity at fighting back to get bronze he wrestles again in a lil over an hour I believe

    Lester will face Germany’s Frank Staebler with the winner battling World silver medalist Manukhar Tskhadia of Georgia in the bronze medal match at 66 kg/145.5 lbs.


    Justin Lester stays alive in Olympics, needs 2 more wins to earn bronze medal | TheMat.com - USA Wrestling
