I run grappling tourneys in south florida and run into this issue quite often. 2 teammates make it to the finals or face each other in a consolation match ( we're double elimination) and refuse to grapple each other. I've had guys share medals, flip coins, play rock paper scissor, so they don't have to compete against eachother... Personally this makes no sense, i have competed against teammates in the past and had some awesome matches. It's not the same as in the gym, the pressure is real and you are standing in the way of each others glory. Would you compete against your teammate?why or why not?
