Hopefully they send them to a real tournament instead because the winning world cup every time was getting embarassing.

 

well I don't think they will send the top guys to any other tournament, some of them will go to the Asian Champs . they want Yazdani and the rest get familiar with new format, weight-in etc. and we will have Asian Games this year which has the same importance as the World Championship. if you count the trials, 3-4 serious tournaments is enough for a year

 

btw Yazdani won't move up to 92kg. this is just temporary for the Asian Championship. and even that is not a sure thing.

Sorry but Taylor got destroyed by Lashgari and barely beat this impoverished Cuban 4-4. Even Yasar only 4-1 when Yazdani teched Yasar a few months back. Not to mention a disabled Cox on 1 leg beat him. This is why he should stay at 86 and relax there winning easy golds.

The Taylor vs. Lashgari match is not a good reference for comparison.  Taylor had just moved up to 86 KG for the first time and was a pale comparison to what he is now. Not big enough; no gas tank at the time.  Taylor beat Cox in the first match and then Cox slid his way around on sweat the last match (aka stalled forever).  That match was an embarrassment and the ref let it happen.   Easy golds?  No such thing.  The fact remains that Yazdani was pummeled and pinned (!) by Taylor in a match that mattered on Iranian turf no less.  Might not happen that way next time (if it does even occur) but you can't deny the beat down.

Sorry but I don't appreciate the way you are putting down Cox. The superior wrestler won that series and showed a lot of courage wrestling and winning on one leg.

He was big enough here. He's not going to be as muscular as Lashgari since Lashgari is short. I look at Taylor in that match and see a good sized 86. Bigger than Yazdani was when he won worlds recently. Gas tank? The match did not even go 3 minutes.

strong rumors in Iran, UWW will ban Iran wrestling for a long period because of that Karimi match. A YEAR !

 

Karimi and his coach will get even more, which will probably end his career.

 

we will have the official news about that soon from UWW.

Turned out to be a fake news, UWW banned Karimi for 6 months and his coach for 2 years.

Iran wrestling officials were talking about a suspension but I somehow think that wasn't serious from the start, they used this to show the government that this Israel thing is serious now, hoping they will change the policy.

The federation site says Taheri is going at 125. Also it's clear the state of 57kg in Iran is extremely poor with wrestlers like Hajaghania.

fixed

not sure if I made a mistake ( I doubt) or they just changed the list

 

yeah Rahimi is moving up weight (at least for now. 2 years away from the Olympics) and Atri also apparently can't make 57kg anymore, Hajaghania is the only option they have ! who is even worse than Atri !

Somebody needs to come through from cadets or juniors at 57 before 2020. Hajaghania is really bad. Honestly he makes Atri look good. Atri's career is also probably over if he can't make 57 as his only hope was making the team at a weak weight where his competition was Hajaghania. At 61 he would have to deal with Sadeghi.

Has a ban like this ever happened before?  I don't seem to recall one, so this is very interesting that UWW is cracking own on Iran....Will the next ban only be 6 months?

...Well at some point they will be faced with the prospect of facing an Israeli athlete....Will they still be fanned if they forfeit prior to the match?  Or is it just if they throw a match as it is happening?  It's only a matter of time before it happens given the random draw.

UWW doesn't care at all from what I can tell. It depends on if the IOC gets involved like they did this time. The IOC put pressure on UWW to punish Iran, otherwise UWW would not have done anything. This only got widespread attention because his coach was screaming at him from matside to throw the match. Usually they are more subtle and only a small number of people who are interested in wrestling hear about it. We will see what happens next time this happens.

Rasoul Khadem just resigned as his positions as Iran Wrestling Federation president and freestyle head coach. and he won't go to Kyrgyzstan

 

This is related to that Karimi Worlds U23 match, since then Khadem asked for a change in this policy claiming next time UWW will punish Iran very hard.. apparently he didn't get a positive response.

They will coach the team in Asian Champs but no idea what will happen after that.

 

the sport ministry is not agree with Khadem's resignation, they say they will try to convince him to stay.
