    If that was the problem, then Iran would not do so well in Cadets. I think the problem is Iran's ability to develop its young cadet champions into relevant senior wrestlers

    Perhaps if he does something truly outrageous, such as go to the podium with a short sleeve shirt, they will ban him

    Some of you have probably already seen this, but here is Yazdani vs Shabani at the trials earlier this year. Reza Yazdani - Ali Shabani / Iran 97 kg trial match 2019 I believe Shabani is at the point in his career where he will be better every time we see him

    Coach J, Jafar has Arabic roorts, and in Arabic it means Stream. Jafar happens to be the name of one of the Shia Imams, and also the name of the brother of Ali, perhaps the most revered Imam for Shias, so Jafar is a very popular first name among Shias. As wrestfan correctly said, Iranians make up last names names by taking a first name and adding ian, I, Pour, Zadeh or Nejad to the end of end similar to adding Sen or Son in Stevenson or Stevensen.

    Iran's failure to develop its cadet champions into future senior contenders is very disappointing

    Yes, no argument there. The incompetence and dishonesty of the team doctor cost him at least two years, possibly four years

    Thanks for the post. I enjoyed watching it. His father had some tough draws in the Olympics getting silver against Beloglazov in 88 and then again against John Smith in 92. He sounds credible, and I want to believe him, but unfortunately, most dopers deny doping. It's next to impossible, scientifically to get a false positive. I feel bad for his father, I feel the pain in his voice when he talks about the doping.

    Some interesting pictures from the Iran camp Karimi doing curls with Ghasempour. Reza Yazdani squatting Komeil Ghasemi. Pictures taken from a tweet by @irani, who is a different person than me

    If Yakhkeshi is selected, I hope they invest in purchasing a long sleeve shirt for him

    I was very disappointed after I watched the video. the Mongolian coach had a challenge rejected, and kept his pants on. Come on!

    So this disqualification is getting stranger someone tweeted a picture of Yakhkeshi on the podium with his controversial short sleeve shirt that got him disqualified. Hajaghania wore the exact same outfit earlier and did not get disqualified. Look at the picture here https://twitter.com/sikom_d/status/1132536428116795393

    So does Iran get a qualification slot for 61 or does the disqualification null the slot that he won?

    Do you think the coach is already making a difference?

    A couple of nice take downs by Reza Yazdani. Apologies for the annoying music
