strange comparison considering they wrestled different weights by about 50 lbs
it'd be like comparing the 100m champ in track to the 800m champ and definitively saying one is better than the other
Or comparing the 100m champ to a swimmer. Oh wait, they have been doing that all week. Did you watch wrestling when Metcalf and Varner were competing, because it was certainly a discussed topic. Heck, sports is all about comparing people/teams that have never directly competed against each other. Do you even watch any sports?
Congrats to Jake! Good to see a Cyclone reach the highest achievement available in sports.
On a side note, I wish folkstyle ("American") wrestling was as popular worldwide and in the Olympics too. I just feel that there's more action and excitement in folkstyle than freestyle or greco-roman.
