In the competitions held at Ghaemshahr, north of Iran, Raymond Jordan in 84 kg class and Tervel Dlagnev in 120 kg won the silver medals. Coleman Scott in 60 kg and Trent Paulson in 74 kg claimed bronze medals as well.
 
Iran stood atop the podium in the two-day Emam Ali Habibi & Abdollah Movahed Free-Style Wrestling Cup with 68 points, bagging six gold, two silver and 11 bronze medals. Russia came second with 40 points and the United States was third with 36 points.
 
"Overall, it looked like we had a good tournament. We sent six wrestlers to Iran and came home with four medals that`s a good percentage. We`re definitely improving and that`s our number one goal getting better," said National Freestyle Coach Zeke Jones.
