    The thing on the right side is a scale.

    Several years later


    Mystery riddle: Who is the US guy? Help: The photo shows a match at the 2001 Takhti tournament. Several years later both wrestlers medaled at one and the same world championships. The US wrestler did it better than the Iranian.

    Is this a picture of future 74 kg Silver medalist Asghar Bazrighaleh?

    This past week several tournaments were held: the Pan Ams, the GR World Cup, the Hungary GR Grand-Prix, the Cyprus FS tourney. However, the most exciting one was missing in the calendar of FILA ? March 1, the 13th edition of the Karakucak-Wrestling in the Snow tourney (Velik?y kar?st? karakucak g?reşleri). It was held in the Velik?y village in the mountains of northeastern Turkey near the border to Georgia. In 12 age and weight classes, 104 wrestlers from Turkey and 11 wrestlers from Georgia grappled in the snow.
