The Iranian team had reason to celebrate as Pooya Dadmarz secured the first gold medal of the Asian Wrestling Championship for them with an incredible performance in the 55 weight category of the Greco-Roman wrestling contest. In the ultimate showdown, he outwitted his Indian opponent with a brilliant 3-1 victory. Dadmarz’s journey to the final was no cakewalk either, as he had to defeat a Japanese rival and an Uzbek opponent in the previous rounds to book his place. This triumph adds yet another feather in the cap for the tenacious, skilled wrestler from Iran.
Iranian athlete Iman Mohammadi made his country proud last October when he won a gold medal in the weight category of 63 kg at the world championships held in Spain. Mohammadi’s impressive performance in the final saw him defeat his Uzbekistan opponent 9-0 to secure the coveted medal. Mohammadi’s victory was not the only success for the Iranian team at the championships, as teammate Amin Kavianejad also secured a silver medal in the 77 kg category. Although Kavianejad was unable to compete in the final due to injuries sustained in previous matches, his achievement was still a testament to the strength and skill of Iranian athletes.
Iran’s dominance at the wrestling competition continued as Nasser Alizadeh secured a gold medal in the 87 kg category. In an electrifying match, Alizadeh proved his worth as he defeated his Gyrgyz opponent to add another feather to Iran’s cap. This was Iran’s third gold medal in the event, signaling their absolute dominance in the sport. Meanwhile, Amin Mirzazadeh proved to be another shining star for Iran by defeating a Chinese wrestler 2-0 in the final of the 130 kg category. With this victory, Iran sealed their fourth gold medal of the competition, leaving their opponents in awe of their strength and finesse.
