    It's national.
    Why are you surprised.
    In GR, another Iranian won the Aze nationals this year and even wrestled at the worlds - 84 kg Tahmasebi.

    Today's pics - 120 Azarshakib & Rodriguez

    Do you see the letter E on Azarshakib's singlet? It's part of AZE )



    And in this pic, you can see the Aze national flag on the left of his T-shirt, close to his heart. ))

    I was surprised when I heard about Tahmasebi but that's a little different ! Tahmasebi had no chance to wrestle for Iran anymore, unlike Azarsakib. Iran has many good wrestlers in 84kg GR (Nematpour, Abedinzadeh, Akhlaghi and Akhbari) but what about 120kg Freestyle ??

    also Azarshakib competed for Iran this year in many tournaments, he can't wrestle for Azarbajian right now. waiting to read about it in Iranian media, i'm sure everybody is surprised !

    Looks out of shape. Not sure how he made 264. Also rusty from not competing in at least 2 years. Should wrestle for Spain instead.

    wow ! now Ghasem Rezaei !! it's a shame for both Iran and Azerbaijan. (and also for FILA) these guys are living and training in Iran and they want to represent Azerbaijan ? what they want to do if they face an Iranian wrestler in World Championship or Olympics ?

    thanks for this news, is there any other Iranian wrestler in this Azerbaijan "national" championship ?

    There is a joke (reflecting reality!!) about the goods traffic at the AZE-IRI border: Kurans from Iran to Azerbaijan; alcohol from Azerbaijan to Iran. Now we can add wrestlers to the items in the first direction. ))
