Iranian Wrestling
How can we have an Iranian forum without a thread to talk about wrestling - the national sport of Iran? 

Today the 2019 Cadets World Championship (hosted in Sofia, Bulgaria) concluded for the men's FS (under 18s). 

FS: Iran won 3 gold medals, 3 silver medals and 1 bronze medal (across 10 weight categories). Iran finished second overall, 2 points behind Russia (but Iran deserved to win, one wrestler was DQs unfairly and we lost points for that - but no big deal).

Very strong performances across the board, three wrestlers to look out for in the future: Rahman Amouzad (48kg GOLD - second Cadet World Gold medal in a row for Amouzad), Amirhossein Firouzpour (80kg GOLD) and Yousefi Sangani (92kg GOLD).

At GR: Iran won 4 Gold medals and topped the team table.

The 2019 Junior World Wrestling Championship will be taking place in Estonia from 12th August. 

The 2019 World Wrestling Championship will be taking place in Kazakhstan from 14th September.

I will post updates for both here. Iran should send a strong team to Worlds in particular and I look forward to seeing Reza Yazdani back in action. 

Hassan Yazdani is probably the best chance at a Gold medal (as David Taylor is missing the tournament through injury), but many other medal hopes are there (Teymouri, Karimi, Hadi).
