Iranian Wrestlers on Top of Freestyle Rankings

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Three Iranian freestyle wrestlers are on top of UWW rankings released on Monday.

The latest rankings will be crucial to determine the top four seeds of the continental championships which begin with the Asian Championships on April 9 followed by the European Championships in the same month.

The top spot at 65kg remains unchanged as world champion Rahman Amouzad sits first with 45,000 points. However, other positions have seen a lot of moving.

Hassan Yazdani won the gold medal at Zagreb Open in the 86kg and that was enough for him to overtake world champion David Taylor (USA) for the top spot with 48,000 points.

The four World Championships medalists continue to occupy the top four spots in the rankings at 92kg but the order has changed. World champion Kamran Ghasempour has 45,000 points at the top.
