The U.S. six-member freestyle wrestling team arrived Tuesday in Tehran to
take part in the Imam-Ali Habibi Cup.
The team traveled to Ghaemshahr, 237 km north-east of the capital Tehran,
where the competitions will be held from July 31 to August 1.
Coleman Scott (60 kg), Trent Paulson (74 kg), Raymond Jordan (84kg), Pat Cummins
(96 kg), Tommy Rowlands and Tervel Dlagnev (both 120kg) are the American
participants in the event.
The team will be competing in the freestyle wrestling tournament while
diplomatic tensions between the U.S. and Iran governments have increased in the
recent months over Iran’s nuclear issue.
