Iran freestyle wrestler earns Olympic gold

TEHRAN – Iranian freestyle wrestlers Hassan Yazdani Cherati and Hassan Rahimi have adeptly employed a mix of primal hand-to-hand combat and complex tactics at the wrestling competitions of the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and picked up two medals, including one gold.
On Friday, the 21-year-old Yazdani Cherati, who had received a bye in his opening round contest of men’s 74kg freestyle weight category, outmuscled Haitian wrestler Asnage Castelly by 10 points to 0 in the first contest at the indoor Carioca Arena 2 stadium in Rio’s western district of Barra da Tijuca.
He then prevailed over his Turkish opponent Soner Demirtas 7-0 in the next challenge to march into the semifinal round.
