Rasoul Khadem, President of Iran Wrestling Federation
On Feb. 23, the United World Wrestling Disciplinary Chamber (WWDC) banned
Iranian wrestler Alireza Karimi from competition for six months, and his coach
Hamidreza Jamshidi for two years after the wrestler deliberately lost a bout to
avoid facing his Israeli opponent.
Iran does not recognize Israel, and Iranian athletes do not compete against Israelis in international sporting events.
Afterwards, Khadem said authorities should reconsider their policy of not allowing Iranian athletes to compete against Israelis.
He stepped down as his post on Feb. 28 but he has returned to the federation on Monday after about two months.
