After the match?? Did they wrestle at all?
Mirzaei and Goudarzi reached the 5th round without any matches lost. They had to wrestle each other in that round. What I know - Mirzaei withdrew. When? Before or during the match?
This means - Mirzaei was clever. )) He withdrew in the 5th round and went to a hospital. This way he escaped the doping test. )))
Goudarzi tried to do the same in the 6th, final round. He got "injured". But it was too late for this strategy. He was obviously still in the hall when the wrestlers were invited to visit the WC. )))
Question is Mirzaei or tatari at 96, i hope they send mirzaei, he has shown potential throughout his career but sometimes just doesn't perform.
Is it just me, or is there a LOT of drug accusations and positive tests associatied with Iranian wrestling lately?
Very interested to see how Taghavi wrestles with the new rules. I hope he takes this opportunity to make his matches more exciting, as he has incredible skill. If he goes to the world's he could arguably be the favorite (apparently Yonemitsu has health issues).
From what little I've seen of Tatari, he's very good and could definitely win a world medal.
but if they disqualify Goudarzi, it won't be fair for wrestlers who lost to him ! I think the only "fair" solution is having another trial with all of the candidates plus Yazdani, Ganji, Abbas Tahan and Erfan Amiri.
I think that is the best solution is there any update on yazdani? And are there any videos from the trials available?
