Iran to host wrestling World Cup

13 Feb 2013
Corsier-sur-Vevey, Switzerland: As in previous years, the FILA Senior World Cup is organised at the beginning of the year, and both men’s styles will be hosted in Tehran (IRI). The Greco-Roman wrestling competition will be held on 19-20 February 2013 and the Freestyle wrestling event right after, on 21-22 February 2013.

The Iranian wrestling team won the 2012 Senior Greco-Roman World Cup which took place in Saransk (RUS) followed by the Turkish and Korean teams. For the Freestyle competition in Baku (AZE), the Iranian wrestling team also won the final match against Azerbaijan. United States of America was ranked third.

This year, the Iranian people hope that their wrestlers will win again both styles in front of their public, but all the qualified countries will fight hard during this great event. FILA wishes good luck to all the participants.
