I wonder how much CL's experience against LD and LCW helped him today. No one was able to play at LD's and LCW's level between 2008 and 2016. But CL reached their level between 2012 and 2016. Then in 2012 to 2016, it was LD + LCW + CL at their own elite level, and a big gap between them and the rest of the field. It would be interesting if we could throw today's CL against the 2012 to 2016 LD and LCW. I suspect Momota's run in 2019 when he was practically undefeatable was a similar level to LD and LCW in their prime. Anyways, CL is 32 years old and is on the wrong side of 30 years of age. I think he can still win an Olympic gold at 32, but it will be interesting to see how his fitness and stamina hold up for his remaining match(es).
