Posted: 16 May, 2013
NEW YORK (AP) - Iran's wrestling team visited the United States for the first time in a decade and found a virtual home meet in New York City.
The fans waving Iranian flags and stomping on the temporary bleachers were treated to a show of dominance by the wrestling power Wednesday in the exhibition at Grand Central Terminal. Iran beat the Americans 6-1. Russia was the third country invited to the “Rumble on the Rails” designed to build support for wrestling, which is slated for extinction as an Olympic sport following the 2020 Games.
