the grand wrestling competition



I'm not sure what the official Olympic rules are for the Wrestling competition but in camp the competitors had their own set of rules which made sense at the beginning.


It was decided that the biggest competitor would need to win all three of his rounds in order to be the winner...
and the little competitors would work as a team.
 I noticed that the rest of the team had a hard time being good sports as it was hard for the spectator and team members alike not to laugh at the spectacle before us.


They did not need to be instructed and coached more than once.
It was a pitiful sight from the spectators box.


I cheered...Oh I cheered and yet...
the big one went down with a thud.


They each had their turn to tag team  (which wasn't actually allowed in the rules).


Later...
the winners took the non medal winner in the Wrestling Competition for a preview of the next competition.

Balance beams...
we didn't see that one coming.

all for now...

  4. They will always remember these grand olympics. When I saw the preview of what was to come, my firt thought was the hurdles. I wonder how much the rules would have to be bent on that one.
