I don't understand why it is such a big issue if an Iranian wrestler does not compete against an Israeli. The Israeli automatically wins. How can they be upset with this?
I also don't understand how a country who's athletes almost always get eliminated in the first round have such a big say with Fila when the other country is a wrestling powerhouse. How does Israel have such a big say and Iran has none at all?
This sport is an Iranian sport, Iran is the home of this sport, most of the athletes who win have some sort of Iranian background but this country has no say and instead a country like Switzerland (which is nothing in wrestling) has the power. This all needs to change and th wrestling governing body should be moved to Iran.
This is just another case of the very frequent anti-iranian sentiment shown throughout the world.
