    1972 Olympic Suplex Video

    Maybe if I post something I'll stop being remided that I haven't posted in a few weeks.

    In the 1972 Olympics, a time before heavyweight had a limit, Wilfred Dietrich of West Germany hits a textbook suplex on over four hundred pounds of Chris Taylor.

        The awesomeness of that clip is almost unfathomable.

          That's a really nice clip. I still prefer the Randleman-Fedor suplex, but this one ain't too shoddy either.

              That's the one that came to mind when I saw this one.

                Actually, a belly-to-belly Back-Arch throw in Greco-Roman Wrestling is called a Salto, if memory serves.

                The WWE has a Suplex (sounds like "sue - plecks"). However, a belly-to-back Back-Arch throw in Greco-Roman Wrestling is also called Suplex, but is pronounced as "sue - play" because it is a word of French origin in an international sport. In the U.S., many people have adopted "Suplay" as an alternate spelling.

                Folkstyle wrestling used to just lump all this into a more generic term of Back-Arch. Regardless, I cringe when I hear "sue - plecks" (or worse - "sup - pill - lecks" - ugh!) applied to legitimate wrestling because of the WWE association.

                  for a second there, I thought that the guy was going to land right on top of him. would this be counted as a slam in a BJJ tournament?

                  great post Tom Kagan. I will never call that throw a soo-plecks again!

                    well he does land on his head first and then rolls and finishes the sue-play. of course on "The Streets" that move would have result in some seriopus brain damage for the thrower.

                      If you want to get really technical, a salto is belly to belly while a suplay is belly to back.

                      Edit: Next time I'll read more carefully.

                          As someone who's always said "suplecks" I appreciate any information that will help me sound like I know what I'm talking about. The back arching throws are some of my favorites to pull off.

                          Any idea what the proper term for a "guillotine suplex" is?

                            The dynamics of the throw don't work that way. He's using his head to post, not land. The brunt of the landing's impact is taken by the opponent and the attacker's shoulders. If the opponent had countered to cause a different landing, the attacker wouldn't have done that - at least at Olympic class levels of conditioning and technical competence. (Frankly, at that level of competition, it's a little strange the opponent didn't even release one or both overhooks to start a counter in mid throw. He got caught really badly.)

                            Regardless, while that throw requires a great deal of technical competence and conditioning over and above most all other throws, its result does not depend on the cushioning of the mat. If any serious damage to the attacker occurred, it would be to his neck - just like on mats in practice and in competition. Ugly cuts and an ouchie cartoon bump from the glass and lava of "t3h str33t" don't count as catastrophic. Neck injuries can be pretty bad, though.
