  1. No problem Smedly: When Taylor made the score 6-4, the commentator said "Yazdani is in shock, he can not believe the scoreline and is barely able to get up and continue the match. We have never seen Yazdani like this before." "This David Taylor guy is amazing. He has already beaten one Olympic champ in these competitions and is trying to beat another champ." When Taylor pinned him, the commentator said "Yazdani got pinned in an improbable fashion as no one expected. He got tired at the end and look at how Taylor is so happy. As I said before, Taylor beat an Olympic Champ in Sharipov and now added Yazdani's name to that list. Yazdani got tired in the last couple of minutes and was pretty much winded. It is ok that Yazdani lost. Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. There is no question that the surprise of this tournament has been none other than David Taylor."

  3. Hello guys, I just found this video on youtube. It is the complete final dual between Iran and USA... unfortunately for the english speaking people, the video is in farsi. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uwcOq13DBp8
  4. Are we still not crying foul over the 1972 Olympic basketball finals against the then USSR team? Apparently every year the IOC contacts the US Basketball Olympic Committee to find out if they will accept their silver medal.
  5. Thanks for the input Shiraz jaan. You guys are amazing when it comes to wrestling and the details. Like I said, I am just a casual fan. Would you say that Saeed Abdevali is the most fit wrestler in Iran right now? I mean the guys has had some really tough breaks like in London Olympics and the recent Asian Games against the dude from S. Korea. But I have never seen another wrestler, at least in Iran, to have as much stamina as this guy. Care to comment? Thanks.
  6. Guys I've been out of the loop for few months. Is Hamid Sourian not wrestling anymore? Thanks.
  7. According to the farsi site below, Mohammad Bana has accepted to become Iran's Greco Coach again and guide the team in the upcoming Olympic. This is a much needed good news regarding our wrestling. http://www.radiofarda.com/content/f35_mohammad_bana_new_iranian_roman_wrestling_coach/27273579.html
  8. I've said this before... granted I am a rookie when it comes to wrestling knowledge.. but I think another olympic gold and couple of more world golds for JB and he should go down as the best wrestler ever.
  9. Maan.. I love reading your comments. I am embarrassed to say that you guys know more about Iranian wrestlers and their tendencies than Iranian coaches and sport broadcasters. It is funny that I read so many positive remarks about Iranian wrestling here whereas in Iranian sites, I read nothing but negative remarks. People are extremely disappointed with this year's results since not a single wrestler got Gold for Iran. Additionally, people are not satisfied with greco coaches and are desperately looking to get Bana back. People are also not happy with Khadem's work either. The only reason they think Khadem has this job is because of his connection with the gov't. Amir Reza, Rasul's brother, also has cush job in the sport's ministry.
  10. Actually I take it back. I did some research and come to think of it, they have won 20 medals in worlds (2G, 7S, 11B) and 20 in olympics (7G, 4S, 11B).
  11. Wow that was incredible. Is this Italy's first ever gold in wrestling in world stage?
  12. Based on what the Iranian commentator said that it was probably due to the fact that he had lost to Ghasemi the last couple of bouts... U.S. coach wanted to mix it up and put someone else against Komeil.
  13. Guys: In case you want to watch the replay, you can click on the link below to watch it in farsi. This was a great dual... again Jordan was a beast. I don't care what anyone says, this guys is the most dominating wrestler I have ever seen. Eversince he left college, he is 103-2 in tournament matches and one of those losses was to Nick Marable of all people. http://footballitarin.com/video_page.php?id=14318
  14. Maybe and a big maybe... since Iran has already won this dual, Yazdani is purposely not trying in order to save energy for Varner.
