We are now training in Paris at insep which is France’s national training center. Nobody here has been able to turn me yet. I think the French coaches issued a challenge to their wrestlers for today’s practice. Apparently they will take turns trying to score on me on the ground. I think Slavi will be a little worked up because he hates it when people take points on me. The weather has been humid but cool which is great because I sleep better when it isn’t so hot. the food has been pretty good. I was in France in 1997 and have many fond memories of this country.
