    The men's team will leave the Olympics with three medals (1 bronze, one gold, and one gold/silver depending on how Varner does). All three of the medal winners wrestled in the Big XII.

    Will the gold medal match be shown live on any of the nbc stations?

    Unless they change something it'll only be live on the stream and they will show a replay of the medal matches on TV at 1:30PM central.

    Go Jake Go! I was wondering what was going on when all the papers and news kept saying Burroughs was our only chance at medal in Freestyle. Two Golds would be pretty cool. Any idea what his chances are? How did Jake seed? Sounds like the top seed defaulted due to injury.

    They don't seed in the Olympics, they do random draws. All of the favorites to medal and top challengers were on the other side of the bracket. Jake literally could not have gotten more lucky in the draw.

    Then he got even more lucky when the World Champion got injured in the semifinals, pushing a lesser opponent through into the finals against Jake.

    The stars had to align perfectly for Jake to have a shot at the gold, and they have.

    YES! I knew they started either late last night (here) or early this morning. Now just need to find the stream for his match live.

    Is the only stream on NBC? It won't work for me, and I'm getting pretty upset about it

    The Iranian medically forfeited the bronze medal match so it is starting a bit early.
