Popular Post RutgersJetFan Posted August 6, 2021 Popular Post Share Posted August 6, 2021 I get it, niche sport, not into it, the Olympics are too political for me this year...blah blah blah. USA Wrestling has been murdering this Olympics with one all-time inspiring feat after another in a games that the Russians have been dominating since 1984 and I cannot recommend catching up on it enough. More than deserving of your time and attention. I know I am a homer and will probably catch sh*t/trolling for this, but good lord with the amount of bitching on a daily basis I have seen about this games, to watch the combat sports guys lace up their boots, shut up and get to work is something I think we can all learn from. Two last second victories that are already being labeled as the greatest you'll ever see. Here is Gable Steveson's gold medal win from last night. He literally won at the very last second against a Georgian that has been dominating the big boy weight class for the last four years. Rulon Gardner level sh*t here. If watching him celebrate after doesn't give you chills I don't know what to tell you. This. Does. Not. Ever. Happen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fSXPmihrX3c 2 nights ago, David Taylor goes out and comes back down a point for gold from with 23 seconds to do against, again, a dude that has been dominating this class for years. Rulon Gardner level sh*t #2. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADcFirJcob4 Temyra Mensah-Stock went out and became the first black woman to ever win gold and did so by steam rolling everyone in her class and then gave the most amazing interview after winning. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GEhEIy_YHx8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_s2IbQ1Arg Almost every single American has medaled this Olympics after them, in pretty legendary ways too. And if none of this was enough, the finale happens tomorrow morning between America's Kyle Snyder and Sadulaev, who is hands down the best in the world right now and pushing GOAT status. It's the classic USA v Russia rivalry, but these two also have a long history and this is a rubber match between them. The fact that it's happening in a gold medal match as a finale to this last week is insane and not something you really ever see. 18 1 2 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
