On this episode of the RUDIS Wrestling Podcast, Matt Dernlan and Ben Askren begin by discussing the recent news that Russia has been barred from competing in and hosting international sporting competitions in response to the abuse of P.E.D.’s and cheating scandals in recent years. The two then move on to cover the results of the Las Vegas Invitational with a focus on the incredibly dominant performance at 184 lbs by Zahid Valencia. In addition to the U.S. results over the weekend, Askren and Dernlan get in contact with coach Matt Storniolo to get answers on Sebastian Rivera’s plans after he made the Puerto Rican Olympic team at 61kg.
