Iran Freestyle wrestling team finished 2020 Olympic Games with one silver and one bronze medal.
2016 Olympic Champion Hassan YAZDANI in 86kg and Amir Hossein ZARE at 125 kg were two Iranian freestyle medalists in Tokyo. Yazdani achieved silver medal while Zare won bronze.
In a clash of the titans that will go down in the annals of Olympic wrestling history, David Taylor pulled out a victory for the ages with a late takedown to defeat superstar Hassan YAZDANI (IRI) 4-3 in a nail-biting freestyle 86kg final on Thursday, preventing the Iranian from becoming the first two-time Olympic champion in his wrestling-mad country's history.
Amir ZARE (IRI), the 2019 world U-23 champion, took the other bronze in heavy weight class, also with a 5-0 win, although he did with three stepouts and two activity points against a defensive Zhiwei DENG (CHN).
While, Reza ATRI in 55kg placed fifth, Morteza GHIASI at 65kg, Mostafa HOSSEINKHANI at 74kg and Mohammad Hossein MOHAMMADIAN at 97kg were eliminated in the Olympic Games.
