Szymon Kolecki has a beautiful technique!
I am a big fan of Kolecki, and it's nice to see Poland kick some sporting butt, too.
I like him to medal in the 94s. Marcin Dolega, didn't he snatch 202 or something in training? I'd like to see him take the 105s.
105 plus will be a battle between Steiner, Scerabith... maybe Chigishev and Jaber. With Reza out we have a contest. But no new WR.
Look for Rabykov to win the snatch at 85s but will he keep his lead in the C&J? I dunno. I like how Kendrick is listed as "Kenny Farris" on the IWF roster list.
That's about as far as I can speculate. Look for lots of great Chinese and lots of powerful slavs.
