Nike has announced its decision not to sell Nike Shoes to the Iranian soccer team a few days before the soccer world cup is about to start. They cite the US sanctions against Iran as the reason.
I am bit a puzzled, since the US government always claimed the sanctions are supposed to impact the government, and not the people of Iran. I cannot think of a better way to impact the people of Iran by telling them their beloved soccer team is now targeted.
Based on this, I am not hopefully that US will grant visas to Iranian wrestlers and vice versa, as long as Trump is in office.
To me, this means the world cup, and all other UWW sanctioned events will be hosted somewhere other than Iran or US for the next few years.
