    Why so negative Big? Should have you titled the thread : "Durlacher & Mango beat Iranians in Greco?"

    Mango's opponent Ghazae, the name sounds famaliar. Was he the lightweight Iranian world champ?
    Has Mango bumped up a weight permanantly

    Iran was never a powerhouse in Greco.

    No, Hamid Sourian is the 55kg 3x world champ.

    True, but they've been there with everybody else for the past few years. Greco has never been that popular in Iran in the past but the fans are starting to get behind it. Also freestyle has always been sort of a Tehran and Mazandaran or north Iran monopoly and I think the southern part of Iran is starting take in Greco as their style.

    It was not the best team of Iran. in 5weights, world team members were absent. Hamid Sourian will compete in Asian championship. in 60kg Ghazaei is not between three bests of Iran. Also it includes 74kg and 96kg.
    Best Iranian team which competes in Asian Championship is close to this squad
    55kg: Hamid Sourian
    60kg: Abouzar Nourzadeh
    66kg: Hamid Reyhani
    74kg: Mehdi mohammadi
    84kg: Taleb Nematpour
    96kg: Ghasem Rezaei(is injuried. maybe replace by Nouri)
    120kg: Masoud Hashemzade

    Iranews, a couple of questions for you. Has Nematpour taken over #1 from Tahmasebi? Is Abedinzadeh staying at 84? Who is Nourzadeh?
