Editor’s Notes: Since the WWE is not keen on Cubans, K-1 s definitely the right home for this type of wackiness.

Kyoko Hamaguchi vs the Chinese Olympic Wrestling Team II- Games of the XXIX Olympiad Beijing Summer 2008 -72kg Medal Rounds

Posted by invizweb on August 26, 2008

The -63kg Medal Ceremony is still going on at 5:17 EST so I probably will not be sleeping at 6:00 Am today I guess. NBC commentator is still putting over the American Bronze medalist. Hamaguchi’s team mate, Kaori Icho is pretty photogenic when she is trying to fix her hair. Now NBC is emphasizing Japan only has 2 Gold so far in Wrestling stead of 3.

And so begins the conclusion of the tale which is Women’s Wrestling in the 2008 Olympics.

And this is how we got here:

-72kg Semifinals:

1. Jiao Wang (China) def Kyoko Hamaguchi (Japan)

2. Stanka Zlateva (Bulgaria) def Agnieszka Wieszczek (Poland)

***

-72kg Repechage

Pool 1. Ali Bernard (USA) def Jenny Fransson (Sweden)

Pool 2. Maider Unda (Spain) def Ohenewa Akuffo (Canada)

Posted by invizweb on August 12, 2008

Good Gods its 5:55 AM and I am not even done with the quarter results.
