    Actually "pehlivan" has a much broader meaning. The forum Iranians will expain. )) The word is of Persian origin and in both Persian and Turkish its main meaning is hero. In both languages, there are other words for wrestler.
    Pehlivanoglu is quite popular in Turkey and in countries which were under Turkish rule 100-150 years ago: Greece, Bulgaria etc. In Bulgaria, it's Pehlivanov. In this sense the new name of Saritov is nothing unusual.

    I can;t see any results for him in any international comps.
    well, his name is Habibollah Akhlaghi, Jomeh is probably the name of his father. (I don't know why FILA Website writes Iranian names in that way)

    he is also a former world bronze medalist, in 2009. he was absent last year due to injury and according to coach Banna, he trained double hard to catch Nematpour. I saw him in Baku GP this year and he was really good, he completely destroyed Saman Tahmasebi (Iranian wrestler , representing AZE) in final.

    and he is experienced enough, to me he is our best chance for the gold this year. I can't see any wrestler better than him. he is extremely good in first 1:30, but not that good in par-tere. (Well, nobody's perfect)
    his style is quite similar to Abdevali (66kg). no surprise, they are both from the same city.

    So little Mankiev is going hey? Do the two brothers take turns?

    Khugaev as 2-1 vs Mishine this year, so I guess he beat him out for the spot.

    I wonder why Russia doesn't have the same sucess in greco that they do in freestyle? They are still great, of course, but nowhere near as dominant.
