Reza Dilmaghanian: Ranking should inspire # Armwrestling #

What could correct ranking bring to sportsman? Is eight an optimal number? What could be the final score of this Top 8 card of sportsmen? Reza Dilmaghanian answers. ()

I love the idea of a top 8. Most athletes aspire to reach the top, before this ranking system we based our rankings on opinions. Now there's factual information that will determine a athletes rankings.

I believe the top 8 is optimal for a few reasons; top 3 often discourages those that place is between 4th and 8th place. Often the way brackets play in your favor can determine your ultimate placing in an event. So having an annual rankings based off consistency will give us a real teir of the top athletes.

It should also inspire those who don't always place top three to show up to more events because they want to get ranked and in the future top 8 contestants may have more options for sponsors.

As for the upcoming top 8 event this set of athletes should prove more than entertaining. Obviously, everyone wants to see Levan and Denis. This one potential match alone could change the sport. I’m predicting denis takes 1st. Followed by Levan in 2nd. With a close 3rd between Rustam and Prudnik.

As for the 5th-8th positions and even potentially 3rd to 8th it could all be about how their styles of pulling complement each other.

For example if Denis has Dmitry 1st and Levan has Alex. I believe that Denis will over power Dmitry easily. As for Levan – he may have a decent match with Alex. Due to Alex’s long arm and his expanding knowledge of the sport. Prudnik and Rustam will destroy each other. Or Rustam will injure Prudnik’s pronator early on. If Prudnik takes Rustams hand early on it may be something else. But I see these guys in straps. Tim and Genadi will be crazy. These guys were all over the place in there last vendetta and the fouls really hurt Tim. So this is a good chance for Tim to come up with a better game plan on how to plant his elbow. As for Genadi he need to be fast and explosive. His size disadvantage means he needs to either pin fast or slow him down and out endure Tim which is no simple feat. Then things get interesting.

Let’s see how it plays out if it flows the way I see things going.
