  1. I know this is not international wrestling, but I am so impressed by this, I had to share. There is a similar story about Takhti, which is why he is the most revered and respected wrestler of all time. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/good-news/why-a-champion-high-school-wrestler-surrendered-a-match-he-could-have-won/ar-BBSrkij?ocid=ob-fb-enus-280

    I think you have the right attitude. In order for Iran to get back to the top, we must accept that Iran is not a premier wrestling team at the moment, and is far behind Russia and USA. Two bronzes in 2020 is a reasonable goal that could hopefully be exceeded.

    GholamReza Mohammadi was the youth coach. His results as the youth coach are pretty impressive, so let's hope he can transition to Seniors successfully. Bana is a proven GR coach, let's hope he can pull a miracle in time for the olympics

    Interview with Coach Bana (in Persian). He warns that if Iran does not deal with its GR issues, it will fall behind 10-20 years. He has decided to return to take on the task of fixing the issues. he also said he almost had a heart attack watching the recent world championship

    Welcome to this thread. Wrestfan and Shirazi are encyclopedia's of Iran Wrestling news, and we learn a lot from them. It's also great to post and exchange ideas with our non Iranian friends on this board. They are mostly knowledgeable wrestling fans, and it's great to interact with them.

    Could you elaborate on why you think Yazdani has a match up problem with Taylor. I did not see the match, but I know he was ahead 6-2, and then lost the second round 9-0. That does not sound like a match up problem. It sounds like either a conditioning issue, or a hell of an adjustment by Taylor and his coaches in the second round, with no response from Yazdani

    Perhaps I am/was overly optimistic. I was not aware of our poor performance against the Russians

    That I agree with. He should just coach, not coach the coach

    I, for one, do not want him to stay out. I would much rather the wrestlers get instructions from Khadem than Talaie or any of those other guys

    Shirazi and wrestfan, how far are these juniors from wrestling at the senior levels? are any of them ready now?

    As I think about it, the story is not that interesting! :), but since I started it, I will tell it any way. I had a school mate in grammar school who went to Sweden for High School. I moved to the US around the same time. In his 20s, he moved to the US, and by now was fluent in Swedish. His license plate used to read "BAKFUL". That means "Hung Over" in Swedish. We used to go to bars and night clubs in California on weekends. Almost every weekend, we met one or two Swedish girls because of that license plate! I owe some of my most fun memories in my 20s to that license plate!

    As I have said before, you always have the best stories! Do you speak Swedish? I know one word in Swedish and there is a good story behind it!

    May he rest in peace. Here is a video of him in the 1977 finals
  15. and I must disagree with you. I agree that the coaches and wrestlers are not to blame, but someone has to be punished. In my opinion, if you enter a tournament, then you must be willing to wrestle anyone else regardless of nationaltiy, religion or race. If you don't, then the country has to be sanctioned. As much as it pains me to say so, I would be in favor of sanctioning Iran from wrestling contests until they agree to behave appropriately/ Similarly, if Iran refuses to grant visas to other countries,or if US refuses to grant visas, then they should not be allowed to host UWW sanctioned tournaments. See, you brought us back to the beginning of how thread started :)
