I'm still sitting on the fence about the 50/50 guard. The whole thing reminds of the 6th grade, when everyone went rockabilly for 5 minutes. I wasn't really sure about it, but since all the cool kids were doing it, I had to sport the pompadour and listen to the Stray Cats. It's not unlike your past experience with 'N Sync. No judgments. I know Justin Timberlake was very charming.
The reality is, whether I like it or not, the 50/50 is a position heavily employed by the world's top tier athletes.
Despite losing in the semis for absolute, Calasans wins his division again this year by a narrow margin. Watch his final match for gold at 83 kg - wild 50/50 action!!
