    Iran's team for Ziolkowski tournament in Poland 57: Reza Atri 65: Amir Mohammad Yazdani, Iman Sadeghi and Peyman Biabani 70: Younes Emami 79: Bahman Teymouri 74: Reza Afzali, Ahmad Mohammadi 97: Reza Yazdani I think it's very clear that it will act as the "real trial" for 65 and 74. they were not satisfied with the trials in Tehran so they want to test them once more. I think we know the World Team in 8 weights for sure. those guys here plus Behnam Ehsanpour (61), Hassan Yazdani (86), Alireza Karimi (92) and Parviz Hadi (125)

    Alireza Dabir became the new president of Iran Wrestling Federation. he won the election today in the 2nd round. Khadem's vice president "Hamid Banitamim" who was supposed to be the main candidate was third in the first round. Dabir won the 2nd round 31 votes to 12 against a guy named Nassirzadeh (who was apparently a wrestler before but it looks like he was just a guy with connections, sounds like a dirty guy to me, glad he didn't win) I wonder if Dabir is going to change anything, I know he has good relationship with Banna (doesn't necessarily mean he is OK with Bana's style) . no idea what he thinks about the freestyle team. for some reasons nobody knows, other big names (Amir Reza Khadem and Abbas Jadidi) weren't allowed to be in the election, Dabir himself rejected in first place but they let him participate only in last 2-3 days. Alireza Heidari withdrew himself. usually only people with criminal background are rejected in such elections, which is weird because Amir Khadem was chancellor to sport minister only few months ago !! Dabir was smart as a wrestler, let's see if he is smart here too or not, he lost his popularity when he entered into the politics, he was in bed with some bad people (by bad I mean so called hardliners in Iran) and the last time he entered into the election (for Tehran city council where reformists won every seat, 100%) he and his friends lost it badly. he lost his place in politics, so he came back to wrestling where he still has credibility.

    Shaabani made it to the final after couple of good wins, it will be interesting to see him vs Snyder. this guy is really improved from what I heard last year Worlds U23 was his first international tournament. his semifinsl vs Alborov .what he hell is that ! you see sometimes they lose control and do stupid things once or twice but Alborov deserved caution something like 5-6 times here. they had to disqualify him earlier.

    Teymouri was very disappointing, not because of the result but because he didn't even try in 2nd period. if you could listen to the coach, Mohammadi was furious I'm sure I heard the word "lamassab" few times lol (don't know what's the equal word for that in English, probably nothing) I think he is good in general but he needs more matches against tough wrestlers. even in his QF despite the lead, Mohammadi was pushing him to score a takedown in "the way they trained before" today we had U23 team trials, interestingly we had some familiar names in the competition. we had Ghasempour and Yakhkeshi winning 86 and 61. I also can name Shahbazi (92), Sarlak (57) and Savadkuhi (79). Arashk Mohebbi was also there at 92 but he lost in semifinal (and not to Shahbazi)

    most Iranian family names are consisted of a name + suffix . there are some common suffix you see in Iranian names. "i", "ian", "nejad", "zadeh", "pour" so Jafarian is Jafar + ian. there are so many Arabic names in Iran these days and Jafar is one of them.

    they made the list much shorter , they didn't explain why but the team is just Jafarian, Shaabani, Teymouri, Forutan and Mohebbi.

    there is a list on UWW website for Yasar Dogu tournament but the Iranian team is completely different than the provisional list. mostly younger/unknown wrestlers 57 Erfan Jafarian, Amir Parasteh 61 Majid Dastan 70 Meisam Nasiri 79 Bahman Teymouri 86 Mersad Marghzari 97 Ali Shaabani, Abbas Foroutan 125 Yadollah Mohebbi only Teymouri from the World team is here, also it seems they are giving another chance to Nasiri to challenge Emami for the spot. obviously they don't care much about ranking points anymore. but by looking at the current ranking, Emami is 5th, H. Yazdani 3rd (2nd without Taylor) and Karimi 2nd. the rest can't make it to top 4 , (Hadi is 6th but I'm sure 4 of those guys above him will participate in the Worlds) I think for the Iranians only few things really matter in the ranking, for Karimi not being in the same side as Cox. at 97 not being in the same side with both Sadullaev and Snyder (problem solved they are 1st and 2nd) and at 125, the same with Akgul and Geno. even if Geno recovers in time, Akgul is currently 4th but will be 3rd after Yasar Dogu. problem solved ! and I think now without Taylor it doesn't matter for H. Yazdani. but at least being top 4 means he most probably will get a bye in the first round lowering the chance of running into Israel.

    as usual they invited a list of wrestlers to the national camp after the trials . as usual there are some youngsters in the list to train with the rest , I'm not going to mention them . some important notes * no Yakhkeshi at 61, which means Ehsanpour will go to the World Champs for sure. Karimi at 92 and also Teymouri 79 and Atri 57 are guaranteed too. * beside Younes Emami we also have Meisam Nasiri once again, I don't know what does that mean but Nasiri isn't here just to train ! I assume they are not 100% satisfied with Emami. * they invited Mohammadi, Afzali, Nokhodi and also Peyman Yarahmadi for 74kg ! interestingly they wrote Mohammadi's name first, traditionally whoever they write first is their main candidate. I just assume the spot is not yet safe for Afzali. * we have A. Yazdani, Biabani and Sadeghi for 65kg. they only dropped Ghiasi from the trials.

    I have no idea what they are going to do with 65kg. Yazdani won the trials but he was far from convincing, Biabani despite finishing last, beat him quite easily in the last match ! 74kg was even worse, Afzali won 3 matches and since the other 3 beat each other, he is in a good position but we know he is very bad in international competitions . today he beat Rashidi and Nokhodi easily but he was very lucky against Mohammadi. I would give another chance to Mohammadi, he wasn't that bad today, still he gives up points easily. 86kg was quite a battle, Yazdani beat Ghasempour 6-3 and made the world team. pity they only wrestled once. 97kg, this Shaabani guy was kind of surprise of the day, he beat Talebi (quite unexpected) and then had a close match with Reza Yazdani, I have to say if he had more experience we could have a different winner today. 125kg, Komeil kissed the mat and said goodbye to wrestling after losing to Hadi. he also lost to Mohebbi. he had a great career with two Olympic medals. ----------- based on G. Mohammadi's interview and per today results I think it's fair to say these guys are already selected for the Worlds Atri 57, Ehsanpour 61, Emami 70, Teymouri 79, H. Yazdani 86, Karimi 92, R. Yazdani 97 and Hadi 125 questions are about 65 and 74, I think Afzali will be the 74kg guy (unfortunately) but 65 is still a mystery. none of them were convincing today.

    They announced the program for tomorrow trials in details. this is going to be weirdest trials ever ! Round 1: 65kg: Ghiasi vs Biabani --- Yazdani vs Sadeghi 74kg: Nokhodi vs Mohammadi --- Rashidi vs Afzali 125kg: Hadi vs Mohebbi 97kg: Shaabani vs Goudarzi Round 2: 65kg: Sadeghi vs Biabani --- Ghiasi vs Yazdani 74kg: Afzali vs Mohammadi --- Rashidi vs Nokhodi 97kg: Talebi vs winner of Round 1 125kg: Mohebbi vs Ghasemi Round 3: 86kg: Yazdani vs Ghasempour 65kg: Yazdani vs Biabani --- Sadeghi vs Ghiasi 74kg: Rashidi vs Mohammadi --- Afzali vs Nokhodi 97kg: Yazdani vs winner of Round 2 125kg: Ghasemi vs Hadi -------------------------------------------------------------------------- they also mentioned "coaches can decide about extra wrestle-off for any of those weights" they didn't say "same day same venue" or for another day. but I assume the same day after all of these matches !!! for example if Ghasempour beats Yazdani narrowly they may tell him to wrestle Yazdani again ! so many questions about this. for example how come Reza Yazdani gets a bye to the final and will wrestle only once ?! based on what ? Hamed Talebi beat the same guys (he beat in Dan Kolov or Asian Champs) even easier. I think most people will wait for the 3rd round to watch some big matches, mostly Yazdani/Ghasempour and Hadi/Ghasemi.
