A bit update after the Olympics


none of the wrestlers announce retirement yet (except Akhlaghi in Greco)


Reza Yazdani was disappeared from media for few weeks after the Olympics , he is found now ! and he claims he wants to continue but he will undergo a surgery first, if he can wrestle after that he will continue his career.

Hassan Rahimi (another guy who was expected to retire) claims he will be around for another Olympic cycle. he claims only recently he found out "how to wrestle" thanks to Khadem.


but Iran will have a new coach, Khadem as the federation president will not coach the team anymore. Mohammad Talaei is the new coach. he was junior team coach in past 3-4 years.


even in Greco, Iran will have a new coach , they appointed "Ali Ashkani" as the new coach, he is a 2005 world silver medalist.
