I guess now they are going to have matches in every weight class to decide who goes to Serbia?

https://www.khabarvarzeshi.com/news/279229/انتخابی-تیم-ملی-کشتی-آزاد-در-همه-اوزان

 

Yes, they announced it a few days ago. It will be interesting who they allow to wrestle in each weight. I thought it would be just the guys invited to the training camp in each weight wrestling but some of the guys who wrestled in the trial at 65 were not invited but still took part. They still have not announced the date or the wrestlers. 

57 - Atri, Sarlak and Amouzad are listed in the camp. Not sure if Amouzad is a 57kg wrestler as he wrestled at 61 in the league with a weight allowance. 

61 - Ehsanpour and Dastan? 

70 - Younes Emami and who? The Elahi guy who just came from cadets? 

86 - Yazdani and Ghasempour?

92 - Ebrahimi vs who? Karimi already said he will not try and make the team this year due to his injury. Ebrahimi just beat Mohebi easily in the league, do they do that match again? Maybe have him wrestle Shabazi? I believe Bazri wrestled here in the league, so maybe he will be involved. It could be Ebrahim, Shabazi, Mohebi and Bazri maybe. 

97 - Goleij, Mohammadian and Shabani maybe? Need someone else to make it 4, Yazdani won't be there but maybe i'm forgetting a name.

125 - Zare, Hadi, Foroutan and Mohebi?

so bottomline, we should Medal in 86, 97 and 125, and perhaps hae a shot at the non olympic weights due to lower level of competition

 Ebrahimi should win a gold at 92. If he can't do that then it's a bit embarrassing after all this time he was complaining about Karimi going. The Russian at this weight will be the same wrestler Karimi beat extremely easily last time. Whoever goes at 86 just has Kurugliev. 

Some of the other faces are kind of new so it is hard to make a prediction on how they will do. I think we should get minimum 2 golds, if Zare goes  at HW will be very interesting.

While I agree with Dabir in this case , the way he talks about his freestyle head coach is disrespectful. he is Mohammadi's boss after all, if he really wanted to broadcast the trials, he would found a way.

I really think he wants Mohammadi to resign himself.  he knows if he talks like that about Bana, he will leave his job in a minute. but he likes Bana, obviously he doesn't feel the same about Mohammadi. they can fight as much as they want behind the closed doors but you shouldn't talk about your employee like this in national TV.

and it was stupid and weird from Mohammadi to block broadcasting the trials. I really can't understand why.

another thing, I'm still not sure if 2020 worlds really happens. but that was a good thing for the Iranian wrestling. at least that forced IAWF to do something. restart the wrestling. and everybody with a brain knows that wrestlers are safer when they are training inside the national camp (while quarantined). most of them had hard time to find training partners in their own towns.

92kg: Javad Ebrahimi, Hossein Shahbazi, Mohammad Hossein Mirbaghian, Hossein Jalalinejad, Arashk Mohebbi

round robin between all 3

125kg: Parviz Hadi, Yadollah Mohebbi, Amir Hossein Zare, Amin Taheri, Abbas Foroutan

Do you have a link to streaming broadcasts?

as I wrote in my first post Thursday 5 November

really ? do you expect a link NOW ? lol

they moved the trials to the Azadi Stadium, they want to have live TV coverage. so check IRIB 3 or IRIB Varzesh at the time of the competition.

Mostafa Hosseinkhani wins 74kg trials few minutes ago. this time we had some kind of "live coverage" via IAWF instagram page, matches are still available to watch there

https://www.instagram.com/iawf.ir/

complete results

R1: Hosseinkhani 3-1 Dadashpour / Nokhodi 5-2 Firouzpour / Ebadi 10-10 Kamarvand
R2: Hosseinkhani 4-0 Firouzpour / Ebadi walkover Dadashpour / Nokhodi 2-1 Kamarvand / (Firouzpour, Dadashpour and Kamarvand OUT)
R3: Hosseinkhani 3-0 Ebadi / Nokhodi Bye
R4: Ebadi 3-2 Nokhodi / Hosseinkhani Bye
R5: Hosseinkhani 9-4 Nokhodi / Ebadi Bye

Final Ranking: 1. Hosseinkhani, 2. Ebadi, 3. Nokhodi, 4. Kamarvand, 5. Firouzpour 6. Dadashpour

Hosseinkhani only had problems against his archrival Dadashpour and won that match narrowly. he was pretty comfortable in the rest of his matches , still the same conservative boring wrestlers, but obviously he is better than the rest in Iran, unless Emami moves up a weight and challenge him seriously

I was a bit interested to see Firouzpour here, but it seems his younger brother has a lot more potential compared to him. And I thought Ebadi was doing modeling outside of Iran but it seems he returned to wrestling. In conclusion I wasn't impressed with any of them.

no, in Greco only wrestlers in the national camp are "allowed" to wrestle in this limited trials

and none of Abdevali brothers got invited to the camp. nobody knows exactly why but something like a month ago he said something like "i'm afraid of the virus, I'm not going to the camp even if they invite me" he also said few things about the IAWF's president. looks like that was enough to upset to coach. who is Abdevali's favorite coach. but apparently is not counting on Abdevali brothers anymore.

I think they still consider Saeid for the Olympics but maybe they wanted to show him his behavior is not tolerated anymore.

Not a bad performance by Nokhodi, considering his age (is he 21?).  Gives me hope for his future.

I guess it was the correct decision to add him to the list at the last minute

I totally agree with Shiraz in this. it's not always about the results. but the way he wrestles I can see there is no future for him.

btw we knew they postponed the 74kg trials because one wrestler was tested positive for COVID, we didn't know who but Hosseinkhani revealed that was himself !

I think he's younger than that actually. I think he's like 19. Anyway he only beat Firouzpour who is also a junior like him and Kamarvand who is not good.  Surprisingly Ebadi beat him despite Nokhodi wrestling in a good amount of international tournaments recently. They took this guy to junior worlds, U23 worlds, Asian seniors and that tournament in Italy in 2019. And of course Hosseinkhani beat him easily. 74kg in Iran is extremely weak, especially considering only he came third out of five, if he came third in Russia's 74kg trials you could say something.

Holly crap, that is amazing recovery!  They must have helicoptered him to walter Reed and given him every new medicine there is!

You just wrote the magic words.  He is young and getting good results.  I give him the benefit of the doubt and hope that he will develop.  Of course, given iran's talent to turn multiple cadet world champions into nobodies, the odds are not good

Lol I think you might be confusing him for someone else. He never won any cadet worlds, he got bronze one time. He went to junior worlds but there were 3 wrestlers in his half of the bracket alone that were better than him and he lost to 2 of them. And I wouldn't say he has any results to make him seem particularly impressive even for his age. Beating a guy his same age and kamarvand in one of the worst weights in Iran for the past 8 years (I know Hassan got a gold and then immediately left) to come third out of five wrestlers is hardly impressive. I would say Nokhodi right now is an average junior level wrestler.
