Which countries did not compete in the 2004 Olympics?

In addition to Tuvalu, I found another one: Kiribati (also a Pacific island nation).

Also, I couldn't find any entry for the Vatican City State.

AnswerThe UN has 191 full members. The US recognizes those 191 plus Vatican City as nations. Only the Vatican and two others, both in the Pacific, Tuvalu and the Marshall Islands, did not send teams. By population, Vatican is the world's smallest nation, Tuvalu second, and Marshall Is. ninth. That makes 189 nations at Athens. You may be wondering about the difference between 189 and the "202 participating countries" at Athens. Athens had Taiwan ("Chinese Taipei"), Palestine, and 11 dependencies/territories take part: Bermuda, Cayman Is., & British Virgin Is. (all British), Guam, Virgin Is., Puerto Rico, & American Samoa (all US), Aruba & Netherlands Antilles (Dutch), Cook Is. (NZ), and Hong Kong (Chinese) AnswerThere are lots of countries not participating. AnswerKiribati is participating!!!!!!!! AnswerSpecifically during the Sydney 2000 Olympic closing ceremony all countries of the world were called to reunite in Athens in 2004. However the IOC offical invitations (deliveried in 2003) only go to countries with officially recognised national olympic committees (NOC). So countries without an NOC are not invited to the Olympics. These are generally very small nations and territories in the Asia and Oceania regions.

Do high school wrestlers wear a cup?

I'm an Alabama All State NCAA wrestling champion and I'll be honest, you can wear a cup but it's not suggested because it can affect certain movements and it can actually hurt you more than help.

I always wear a jockstrap and cup for EVERY sport. I play baseball, football, and hockey, as well. For wrestling I wear a soft cup brief that does not interfere and is also relatively unnoticeable if that bothers you. The soft cup is nice since it is flexible but also protects you.

I agree with the previous poster in that I also wear a cup and jock for every sport whether required or not. I feel it gives me the confidence and edge to play all-out without having to worry.

I have been wrestling since age twelve. My first coach insisted that we wear a cup and I have ever since. I am now a senior in H.S. It gives me a peace of mind. I have friends who wrestle and do not wear one and they have been injured.

I have been wrestling since 11 and on my first wrestling practice the first thing I asked him was if we had two wear a cup and he said that it is not needed. But if you want to wear one then that's your choice.

Nope never, jockstrap or brief only.

I am a senior this year and no one wears a cup on my team. Most everyone wears briefs. And yeah you can get hurt there. Freshman year I was in a tournament and got hit there. I took my medical but had to forfeit. It hurt so bad I couldn't continue.

In most cases a cup would create an unsightly bulge in a wrestling singlet, and cups are generally never worn, except perhaps by one organ athletes. Not to say they wouldn't come in handy, as it seems in every tournament you will witness at least one victim curled up on the mat clutching his groin.

I have to admit that yes I did wear a cup for wrestling (as well as for every sport). Like a previous post stated, it gave me the confidence to go all out in whatever I did. That said, it certainly wasn't common to wear a cup for wrestling.

Soft jock strap under the singlet every time.

The Difference Between

What is the difference between folkstyle and freestyle wrestling?

Folk Style is the normal type of wrestling like in junior high, high school, or college. Freestyle is more upper body oriented. I think both are great anyway.

Actually, the more upper body oriented version of wrestling is Greco-Roman. Freestyle and Greco are very similar except in Freestyle you can utilze the legs in the match. For instance double leg and single leg take-downs. In Greco you cannot touch or utilize the legs. But the difference in Folkstyle and Freestyle is the scoring. In Folkstyle there are 2 pts. takedown, 2 pts. reversal, 2 pts. for 3 sec. nearfall, 3 pts. for 5 sec. nearfall, 1 pt. escape, and 1 pt. for stalling or other penalty point. A technical pin in Folkstyle is a lead by 10 pts. Also the match is one constant match in comparison to Freestyle there are 3 separate rounds in one match. To win a match you must win two out of the three matches. After each round the score is reset and both wrestlers are at zero pts. To technical pin a guy a wrestler must lead by 6 pts. There is no such thing as a tie, or overtime, in Freestyle because if the two wrestlers were in a tie of 6 to 6 the last person to score wins or if a wrestler has a higher amount of high scoring moves or throws. This stands true unless there are no pts. scored at all during the round then the wrestlers go into a clinch, where one wrestler has a single leg and the other has to get out, first person to score wins the round. In Freestyle scoring partial back exposure, escapes, takedowns, reversals, and nearfall are all worth 1 pt., a wrestler can be awarded either 3,4, or 5 pts. for a throw (5 pt. throws win the entire match and 2 3 pt. throws win a round regardless of the score), 2 pts. are awarded for complete back exposure (for example the wrestler without control rolls his back on the mat), 1 pt. is awarded to the attacker if both wrestlers go out of the circle (unlike Folkstyle where if your on bottom and the other guy is close to pinning you it would be smarter to "crawl" out of bound if you're able to). And also, in Folkstyle pts. are taken away or given to the other wrestler if you stall, Freestyle however you are encoraged to stall out. But that is the general difference between those two styles of wrestling, there is a lot more but I think that will give you a good idea of the differences.

The three best heels in professional wrestling are most likely Chris Jericho, Randy Orton, and Adam "Edge" Copland.

What is the length of wrestling mat?

The length of wrestling mats tends to vary depending on how well they are taken care of. I have heard of well taken care of Dollamur Wrestling Mats lasting over 20 years without hardening or shrinking. Dollamur offers a 5 year warranty so at very least you should get 5 years out of it but it could last 20+ years.
