Medved Results

Logan Steiber, Kyle Snyder, Richard Perry, and Aaron Pico will bring medals home from the very tough Alexander Medved International. 

Some appear to be panicking since Kyle Snyder has taken a couple losses on the International "circuit". These are some of the best wrestlers in the world in very tough tournaments. Situations like the one in this tournament that cost Snyder the match will happen against the best of the best. Fortunately, Snyder appears to learn and improve every day making panic a silly notion. 

Logan Stieber continues his improvement with a medal here. We have seen it domestically and now the international results are following. However, the melee that will be the 65 kg bracket will be one of the most ridiculous one-day tournaments wrestled on American soil in a long time. It's a good thing, but tough when you realize a 3rd place finish at a tough international tournament like the Medved will probably not help Stieber when he gets a 5 or 6 seed in Iowa City. 

Richard Perry beat the guy that beat Kyle Dake to make the finals and take home a silver medal. Dake, who looked good domestically at 86 kg, has yet to have international success at the weight. Perry, who is a big physical 86 kg, used his strength and speed to take the top US medal at a tough tournament. 

Aaron Pico wrestled the non-Olympic weight 70 kg and took home a bronze. I don't really know enough about the competition to comment further, but the future MMA star is a longshot to represent the USA in Rio.
