United States tied for second in unofficial freestyle team standings after first four weight classes



UNITED STATES TIED FOR SECOND AFTER FIRST FOUR WEIGHT CLASSES IN UNOFFICIAL TEAM STANDINGS IN FREESTYLE Using the scoring system employed at each World Championships, the United States trailed only Ukraine in points scored at the 54 kg, 63 kg, 76 kg and 97 kg weight divisions. Russia registered 21 points, all points scored in three weight classes. The United States was tied in second with 20 points, and three point-scorers. Also with 20 points is Kazakhstan, with three place winners. Point scorers for the United States were silver medalists Sammie Henson at 54 kg (9 points) and Brandon Slay at 76 kg (9 points), and Cary Kolat, who placed ninth at 63 kg (2 points). This done by giving 10 points to the champion, nine to the runner-up, eight to the bronze medalist, down to one point for 10th place. Any athletes placing lower than 10th do not score points. There are no official team standings or team medals in Greco-Roman. The only official way to compare is through the medal count. However, wrestling traditionally evaluates the performance using the World Championships system. The United States has had a strong performance in the other four weight classes, with all four athletes having already qualified for the quarterfinals. The final team race should be tight and exciting. Unofficial team standings after four weights (54 KG, 63 KG, 76 KG, 97 KG) Russia, 21 pts.; United States, 21 pts.; Kazakhstan, 21 pts; Korea, 16 pts.; Greece, 14 pts.; Azerbaijan, 14 pts.; Germany, 12 pts.; Belarus, 11 pts.; Ukraine, 10 pts.; Bulgaria, 9 pts.; Poland, 9 pts.; Georgia, 8 pts.; Uzbekistan, 8 pts.; Turkey, 7 pts.; Armenia, 6 pts.; Cuba, 5 pts.; Moldova, 5 pts.; Slovakia, 3 pts.; Macedonia, 3 pts.; Netherlands, 3 pts.; People's Republic of
