Taylor’s Absence Clears Way for Yazdani in Olympics

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian freestyle wrestler Hassan Yazdani has a good chance to win a gold medal in the 2024 Olympic Games.

Yazdani, Nicknamed “The Greatest” is a gold medalist at 74 kilograms in 2016. He lost to David Taylor in the gold medal match in the 86-kilogram division in Tokyo, apnews.com reported.

Taylor isn’t competing in Paris, possibly clearing a way for Yazdani to return to the top.

Last week, Yazdani claimed a gold medal in the Ranking Series in Budapest to prove his fitness.
