I read so many interviews and comments from wrestlers praising this "team selection package" they officially call it "Cycle" !  lol I'm sure complains start very soon when it actually happens.

Meisam Nasiri for example claims he sweared to never wrestle again but now he is motivated to wrestle !

and MJ Ebrahimi is now preparing himself to beat everybody at 97kg !!! it will be funny if he achieves something with his ultra conservative style.

but that made me think what about non-Olympic weights ? I know nobody cares about that right now but in time for the 2021 World Champs that will be somehow important. that "very smart trial system" says nothing about that. they have to consider an extra trial. if I was Karimi I would focus on that to finally win a world title (with Cox not being around)

I also read that Amir Mohammad Yazdani can't keep himself for 65kg anymore and most probably will try his chance at 74. I think Maghsoudi also has to do the same. but unfortunately nobody can move up to 55kg to challenge Atri !

PS: it seems Dabir and Mohammadi are good now. after that press conference I was almost sure Mohammadi will resign before Dabir firing him but none of them happened !

But there is no date for this procedure starting, right? They don't know when the first provincial competitions will be?

yes there is somehow, I mean not the exact date but the month

nothing for the first provincial round
Nationals in Mehr (September-October)
Takhti Cup in Azar (November-December)
first Intl tournament in Dey (December-January)
Asian Champs in Bahman (January-February) (while in UWW calendar it's scheduled for April)
Trials in Farvardin (March-April)
final Intl tournament in Dey (May-June)

and it's kind of being too optimistic to think we can have a big tournament like nationals in 4 months. (and what about pre-nationals ?) Iran is reporting more positive coronavirus cases since the reopening. and wrestling federation is still waiting for the health ministry's approval to open wrestling clubs (at least for limited number of wrestlers)

for people who can't understand, these are Persian months, Iran use a different calendar

United world wrestling will be interviewing Hassan Yazdani on their instagram today. Obviously Iranian wrestler interviews are usually terrible and very boring (especially Hassan, but I understand they are usually worried about creating controversy) lol but will be interesting to see what they ask him.
