Tehran, YJC. Wrestling Federation VP says that the Iranian team to the US must not have visited LA for all the side issues.

In an interview with Tasnim news agency, Hassan Rangraz said "There was no need for us to wrestle the Americans after we had defeated them 6 to 1. We followed two things by this trip, one being to prepare the National Team members in a serious provisional and the other to keep wrestling among the Olympic games, both of which we achieved.”

In answer to a question regarding the reasons for returning the team to Iran, he said "We suspected that a series of damaging side issues might threaten the team. I do not have detailed information on the matter, but we saw the Iranian team get back to the country because its mission was over.”
