TEHRAN – Iranian Greco-Roman wrestlers have claimed two gold medals and a bronze in the U-23 World Championships.
Pouya Dadmarz made sure he doesn’t return home with silver like last year. He defeated Nihad Guluzade from Azerbaijan 5-1 at 55kg to win the gold.
In a highly-paced bout, Dadmarz scored the first takedown. He did not let the guard down and got Guluzade to be passive.
In the second period, he was called passive but Guluzade did not get the turn that could have helped him remain in contention.
The second gold medal for Iran was won by Iman Muhammadi at 63kg. He defeated Georgian Giorgi Shotadze via technical superiority in the final.
Shotadze was never able to match the high-paced wrestling of Muhammadi. He was warned for being inactive both in the first and second periods. Muhammadi then scored a point. Shotadze was cautioned for fleeing.
Muhammadi then scored a takedown before Shotadze hit a desperate throw but fell on his back, giving Muhammadi a technical superiority win.
Iran’s Ali Akbar Yousefi also won a bronze medal in the 130kg after defeating Sarkhan Mamadov from Azerbaijan 9-1.
