    They will fall eventually, one way or another. but we are not there yet, that won't happen anytime soon. maybe not even in my lifetime.
     
    and right now they are not going in that direction to be "more moderated" but the opposite. the current president (who is also extremely dumb and uneducated) is "less" moderated than all presidents before him. (at least as far as I remember)

    The current situation in Iran may have serious effects on our national teams in different sports. This time is different and everybody is forced to take a side, some athletes even take it further and already withdrew from their teams. (which is stupid IMO)
     
    since it's almost everybody (I mean famous athletes), it will be hard for the regime to punish some of them later but who knows, some of these animals (who consider Taliban as their role model) don't even care about sports and will be happy not having it at all.

    what a proud moment for Albania , after years of hard work on youth level etc, they finally managed to win their first ever gold medal in this sport. hard work always pays off

    Yes, I'm fine. Thanks for the concern my friend.
     
    In fact, I was chatting with Sindo when it hit.
     
    The epicenter was relatively close to my city (just 3 hours or so, which is rather short for Mexican distances), but it was a big 7.4 in Richter scale, so still felt quite strong.
     
    So far, I haven't heard reports of massive damage or casualties yet, and I hope we won't heard.
     
    Still, what is curious is that this earthquake also happens on September 19th, after the disasters of 2017 and 1985 that struck Mexico City.

    Finally a gold medal thanks to Ghasempour  who beat the giant Cox in the final. we are now 1-4 against team USA. and we will have another final vs USA tomorrow.
     
     
    unlike Greco where lots of counties can win medals, looks like the gap is increasing in freestyle. without Russia (which is still #1) USA and Iran brought 17 wrestlers (out of 19) to the semifinal. and it seems only Japan can still compete (only in lighters weights) I was expecting more from India too but looks like they are not having a good tournament this year. even some powerhouses like TUR, AZE and GEO are not having a good tournament.
     
    you might see lots of different counties in the medal table but almost all of them are Russian mercenaries
     
     
  10. Wow!

    nope, Nothing goes our way in this tournament  I can't believe how many close matches we lost despite having the lead late in the match. Zare just had to do nothing to beat a desperate Akgul instead he went for a stupid attack in last 20 seconds and gave up a TD. it was 100% guaranteed gold medal with Geno losing to Mongolia in the other SF.
     
    looking forward for Yazdani/Taylor tomorrow, but I expect another disappointment.

    oh well, apparently this is not suppose to be our tournament. our freestyle received the first shock during the draw . one of our best gold medal chances got ISR in the first round the team title is already gone. that was a big gift for USA
     
    this one is hard to swallow. even more than all those Greco-Roman losses

    I hope he didn't give himself credit for Ali Arsalan this guy just joined the Serbian team few months ago and he still lives and trains in Iran. never saw him this good though.
     
    the same Serbian team just won a bronze at the European Championship few months ago, I wonder what they will do outside of Belgrade. and I wonder if they will buy more wrestlers to fulfill the blank spots at 55, 60, 82 and 130. we have lots of wrestlers better than Arsalan, maybe they can turn them into World Champions
     
     
    it was a terrible competition for Iran. everybody was sure about the team title (yes we care a lot about this) before the competition and now Iran will finish 4th behind TUR, AZE and SRB. most probably without a gold medal, no I don't think Mirzazadeh (or anybody else) can beat Kayaalp. we will end up with 2 silver and 1 bronze (at least all of them in Olympic weights)
     
     
    there was obviously something wrong with the team. we lost lots of close matches. one of our guys got pinned while he was leading 9-1 ! most of them lost to lesser wrestlers by 1 or 2 pts gap.

    Geraei is a great wrestler but his overconfidence hurts him sometimes. he was leading 4-0 comfortably and then he went for a takedown and instead of completing the TD (and get 2pts first) he went for a throw and threw the guy on himself, gave up 2 cheap points. that was a rookie mistake but I'm not that surprised. last year he almost lost to Japan, almost lost to Georgia. he found a way to win those matches but you can't live on the edge and survive everytime. he is not as dominant as some people may think. actually 1.5 years ago he was a nobody and we weren't even confident if he can even qualify for the Olympics !
     
    I think the preparation was terrible this year. most of our top guys rested too much after the 2021 Worlds. (Geraei for example wrestled just in one tournament) when you don't wrestle enough, you do stupid mistakes in crucial moments.
     
    I believe we will do much better in freestyle, but still they had the same stupid preparation plan. that worries me.
  17. Wow!

    what a terrible first day. nobody in the semifinal we lost 3 close (and winnable) matches. none of our wrestlers look in good shape.  looks like the team title is already gone

    sometimes it took few days for FIVB to update the ranking (they are fast for main events but not for the rest). those 2 points belong to Belgium / Faroe Islands match in 2023 Euro Qualifiers late in August.

    It has more to do with politics than disinterest or financial issuses which is also a big problem nowadays. I call it "suicide out of fear of death" policy.

    oh no it's not about WKF rules or being "eligible" to participate. we still had lot more of athletes eligible to participate . (Olympic Champion Ganjzadeh for example)
     
    it's our own "thing" to not participate (or send very limited number of athletes) Iran didn't participate in last World Karate Championship as well. I thought that's temporary but it's almost a year now they are doing the same in Taekwondo as well.

    good to see Iranian Karatekas in global events after almost a year. results weren't great but still good with 2 in the final and 3 in bronze medal match,
     
    still it was limited to only few athletes in certain weights. I wonder if we ever get back to old days of sending 20-30 athletes to K1 events. I wish I knew who makes these super stupid policies.
