That Hamstring-Pelvis-Spine Relationship

What's your point here?

I think the point is the kid on the left lacks hamstring flexibility which destroys the flexion of his pelvis and causes massive rounding of his back. Compare to his opponent who can get lower and be significantly more balanced. My guess is two seconds after the picture was taken that kid up either getting pulled forward and going to his hands and knees, or got taken down by a double leg because he couldn't get low enough to sprawl.

Wrestly will expose weaknesses of this variety like few other sports ... other than maybe weightlifting :)
