  1. Azarshakib lost to Kosovo in the first round! Lol Azerbaijan wasting their time with him.
  2. Ebrahimi is a bit deluded unfortunately. He lost to old Urishev in Tbilisi tournament final 5 - 0 before the last worlds. Urishev lost to Tsakulov in Russia's trials and we saw how Karimi destroyed Tsakulov at the world championships. Will be interesting to see if Nokhodi is actually at this level or if they are just desperate.
  3. They should have developed that guy Mozafari as the 74 after he got junior world silver. He was talented. Instead he got fat and went to 86 which is such a hard weight in Iran and he is very short so no idea why he went up. Now they are desperate and i'm sure they will end up without a medal if they even qualify the weight. I just managed to go back and see Hosseinkhani's loss to Yakup Gor from a few weeks ago for the first time. That takedown he gave up at the end was laughable.
  4. His name is Amir Mohammad but yes I agree I doubt he is the answer to anything. And if he does become good enough to win a world medal it will probably be in a few years and probably not at 65. He was wrestling U23 here but as far as I know he is 18. He would have to be something similar to Japan's Otuguru if he was going to solve Iran's problems at 65 and obviously he is not as talented at Otoguro. It's interesting you mentioned Biabani. Ehsanpour won junior worlds at 61kg in 2012, Sadeghi won in 2014 and 2015, Biabani won in 2016 all at the same weight and yet they can not produce even one medal at this weight since Esmailpour and they are also poor in the weights around it. There has to be a serious problem somewhere in this process.
  5. Taheri has to be at the end of U23 of very close to it. The guy was wrestling at junior worlds with Karimi and Hassan Yazdani. He got destroyed by Petriashvili there. It would probably be better if a guy like Dabir coached instead of being the head of the federation.
  6. Lol I just managed to get the video of the Taheri match now. It's actually incredible how bad he is. He just falls over.
  7. I doubt anyone on that team has much of a future. I will say Taheri the HW gets a lot of chances but I have seem him destroyed 10 - 0 three times now that I remember. At first I thought he lost to the same Khizriev who was at the world championships but its actually a different wrestler with the same name. Sadeghi must seriously be some kind of monster in training because he gets so many chances and always gets disastrous results.
  8. Not sure. Maybe he's still eligible to wrestle in the cadet age group for another year or maybe got injured. The guy who won cadet world gold at 45kg ( I think his name was Khalili?) also wasn't here. But he would have had to go all the way from 45 to 57kg.
  9. I saw Nokhodi at Asian cadet championships and thought he was a talented wrestler. Then he went to worlds and he immediately lost to Japan. But now that it was posted here that he lost on purpose to avoid Israel it does make sense. I went and looked at the bracket and it was possible he would have Israel next. I have to say they did a good job if they faked it because you can usually tell easily. I did think it was weird that they invited him to train with the seniors after not even winning a medal in cadets but it makes sense now. Kavousi has the same problem a lot of Iranian wrestlers have in that he is very basic. He has an underhook to pushout and not much else. I remember his bronze medal match at junior worlds in 2018 he kept getting taken down by the Moldovan kid and giving up 2 points while he was slowly getting 1 point 1 point 1 point pushouts. In the end he lost a close match. Zare (who won at 125kg here and also won the cadet world championship a few months ago) is the same type of wrestler. Generally I think Iranian wrestlers are physically strong but technically poor. The same thing that Iranian fans think is the case for American wrestlers. Maybe that was true about Americans at some point but now it is more true about Iranians. Unfortunately the problem is also seen at the cadet and junior level. Unfortunately it seems Ghiasi from Kermanshah who got cadet gold at 80kg (lost to the Russia in the final on a last second mistake but Russian failed his doping test) did not participate in this junior trial. He really impressed me. I think he could be a great 86 in the future.
  10. https://www.telewebion.com/episode/1989482
  11. Abdollahi is in the final at 92. I like the way that guy wrestles. Hopefully he wins.
  12. Yazdani made the junior world team one time, when he won Asian and junior world gold. So I assume someone must have been beating him for him not to be on the team until his last year of juniors.
  13. Any time you post something on imgur publically you get people doing random comments. Doubt its from this board.
  14. I uploaded the picture http://imgur.com/gallery/goTxx8t It wasn't the league it was clubs cup
  15. Taghavi beat him after junior worlds in the league if you count that.
  16. I agree Ghasmepour has the same problem almost everyone has against Yazdani which is he gets moved around the mat very easily. That's why I want to see Ghasempour wrestle Taylor at some random tournament because I don't think he can beat Yazdani and get to the world team but i'm just interested to see Ghasempour wrestle Taylor. I am not saying I would pick Ghasempour to win I just want to see the match. Taylor can't move guys around the mat the same way Yazdani can. It's a different match. He's not going to just underhook him and walk him out of the mat whenever he feels like it. lol actually I had not watched that match you posted in a few months. It's crazy how easily Ghasmpour gets moved around. It's like he's a 57kg wrestling and Hassan is a 125.
  17. Yazdani always wrestles that bulldozer style. The Russians described Yazdani as a car that runs over his opponents and I think they are somewhat correct. A lot of his points are from pushouts. A lot of his takedowns are from his opponent mistakenly fighting the push out too hard and getting taken down in the process. He is physically freakish and is able to move everyone he wrestles around the mat with his strength and pace (including Taylor before he gets tired). He must be the physically strongest guy in that weight class by far which is crazy because he went up a weight class a year to get to 86. I think what makes him so effective is that style. He terrorises the opponent from the first whistle and it overwhelms almost everyone. Will Yazdani be as good if he tries to wrestle a slow placed match? Hard to say. That's the total opposite of his style. Very hard to just switch like that. Have to keep in mind Taylor also has his own attacks. Taylor couldn't do much in the first period against Yazdani both times they wrestled because he was being thrown around. Who's to say if Yazdani slows the match down that he doesn't simply lose in a slower paced match and also give Taylor the chance to get some points early. Who knows, that's why we watch. We will probably find out soon anyway since he tried the bulldozer method twice and it ended poorly. I assume they will ask him to slow down the match next time. Another thing to keep in mind, the Iranian coaches have a poor poor record of figuring out foreign wrestlers once they start beating Iranian wrestlers. I don't want to talk about about the coaches when they changed them recently but it's true. I would also like to see Ghasempour wrestle Taylor. I think he could wrestle a slow placed match where he shoots for takedowns a couple times better than Yazdani can. That suits his style more.
  18. I wouldn't worry about Taylor too much, Very small chance that Yazdani beats him. They just need to get on the opposite side of the bracket so that Taylor doesn't beat Yazdani then lose to someone else and Yazdani doesn't get a medal. That almost happened in Budapest and could happen again. Need to get those ranking points.
  19. Is 2016 they said whoever performed better in a few international tournaments between Hadi and Ghasemi would go to the Olympics. They both did not lose at the world cup so then they sent them to the Sarkisian tournament in Armenia ( if I remember right). Hadi got gold and Ghasemi lost to some random Georgian and didn't medal, I forgot his name but it wasn't Geno. So Hadi assumed he was going to the Olympics but a few days later Khadem decided to do a trial between with best 2/3 rules. Hadi won the first match but then Ghasemi won the next two. There was a big fight after. Hadi was already upset at having to do the trial because he thought he was going to Rio after placing higher than Ghasemi in Armenia but then losing made him even more upset. He did an interview after saying Khadem always changes what he says. It was obvious Khadem wanted Ghasemi from the beginning but one bad thing Khadem always did was make the trials over complicated. If he just let them do a normal trial in the first place Ghasemi probably would have won and their would be no drama.
  20. Lol did Hosseinkhani lose at the end again? To who?
  21. Rahimi retired from a video interview I saw. You can watch on the United World Wrestling website but I think if you are in America you have to pay. Reza lost to Andriitsev. I thought Andriitsev retired? Anyway even Goleij is beating Andriitsev at this point. I know I said I was against sending the top team to world cup before but honestly Hassan should have gone to world cup. At least Taylor and Kurugliev are there. 86 looks horrible here. He is beating that Daulatbekov guy again. Everytime I see Daulatbekov wrestle an Iranian he loses 10 - 0.
  22. The Iran federation site says Burroughs and Snyder are going
  23. I don't think we will see Rahimi at the Olympics for the reasons wrestfan said, too big for 57 and small for 65. They have no choice but to stick with Atri. But i'll say again, I don't think we will see anyone at 57 representing Iran in the Olympics. That Hashemi is a talented wrestler but I read him (or his dad) has some problems with the wrestling federation. I think he was meant to wrestle at Takhti but did not weigh in.
  24. Cant say much about Taymouri with a win over Hasanov anyway. Hasanov is good but lets be honest even Yarahmadi beat him in his own country (Islamic games) and then did not do much. I've seen Hasan Tabar get destroyed 10 - 0 before also by Dieringer from American and some Georgian. They should probably send Teymouri to some international tournaments now.
