    Man, Jackson was so fast getting in on the legs. Almost needed no setup. Just a way better athlete than his opponent.

    Re: Kevin Jackson Olympic Gold

    So I take it in freestyle there are no points awarded for an escape. It seems like whenever I watch freestyle, the guy in the bottom position just lays as flat as possible, then after a while the ref blows the whistle and they start neutral again.

    Correct, It's takedowns, tilts and push outs. I think there is a point for reversals, but they seldom put their back to risk.
