As you might have guessed I'm a big fan of foot sweeps.  I think one Helen Maroulis hit at the worlds might be the best I've seen.  I've included a link to a clip of it.  Who has some other sick foot sweeps to share?

Mocco always looked for those. The Mongoose hit some mean sweeps in his day.

Mr. Foot Sweep,
Wrestlers with challenged flexibility and imagination find the foot sweep to be an excellent choice.  Grin Cool

Tom must be a "spladle-from-neutral" kinda guy. Smiley

I don't know of a move that feels cooler when you do it at just the right time. It's like gravity (BigG) doesn't exist for a moment.

Swept away, like a true sweep master!

I remember Dave Schultz had the nastiest sweep at weird times. I loved that guy. He made me love wrestling. He was just so smart.

Ron Jeidy has some good footage from his national championship run with the Badgers.   Anyone associated with UW-L wrestling knows the legend of the Rudy foot sweep.
