Kermanshah wrestler wins Bronze medal in Italy

Tehran, May 26, IRNA – Kermanshah wrestler wins 92 kilogram bronze medal at the International wrestling champion in Italy (Sassari)", said the secretary of wrestling committee of Kermanshah province.

"Arsheh Mohebbi, Kermanshahi wrestler was present at the international tournament in Italy, hanging the bronze medal with two wins and two defeats," said Mansoor Kiani, in a conversation with IRNA on Sunday.

He added  that the 92-kilogram Italian Sassari Championship tournament, in which Mohebbi was present at this weight, was held in two groups with participation of seven wrestlers.

*** Karami Leads Iran To Third-Place Finish  
Had it not been for Mohammadbagher Yakheshi's 61kg gold medal getting revoked while he was on the podium, Iran would have had won four gold medals on Saturday.

Either way, Ahmad Bazrighaleh (IRI), Alireza Karimimachiani (IRI) and Hamed Talebizarrinkamar (IRI) won back-to-back-to-back titles at 86kg, 92kg, and 97kg, respectively and helped Iran finish third as a team. 

In the 86kg finals, Ahmad Bazrighaleh pulled off the most improbable comebacks of the tournament, defeating Kazakhstan’s Azamat Dauletbekov in a 29-point shootout. Bazrighaleh was in danger of giving up a technical superiority win when his Kazakh opponent led 10-2 after the first period, but the Iranian fought back and scored 17 unanswered points, outlasting Dauletbekov, 19-10.  

In the 92kg finals, returning world bronze medalist Alireza Karimimachiani muscled around Russia’s Batyrbek Tcakulov (RUS) and captured the gold medal with a 7-2 victory. Karimimachiani scored his seven points off an exposure, three step-outs and a pair of brutality points. 

Hamed Talebizarrinkamar efficiently handled fellow Iranian Abbas Ali Foroutanrami (IRI) 8-0 in the 97kg finals and won his first international gold medals since the 2011 Junior World Championships. 

Sassari, Italy plays host to a massive rankings series event for greco and men's/women's freestyle.
