TEHRAN, TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Hassan Yazdani won the gold medal of men's freestyle 86kg at the 2017 World Wrestling Championships in Paris, obtaining the Iranian wrestling caravan's first gold medal.
Iran's Hassan Yazdani Charati, the Rio 2016 gold medallist at 74kg, managed to reach final with four consecutive victories with his powerful opponents.
Yazdani threw down Friday's final match with Slovakian rival Boris Makojev and won the world championship title with a 10-0 victory.
