Dual meet between Iran US wrestling teams cancelled

A friendly match between Iran and the US wrestling teams was called off, the Iranian wrestling federation announced.

The US state department has not granted visas to the head of Iran wrestling federation Alireza Dabir and five other team’s members, the federation said in a statement on Thursday, according to Tehran Times.

The Iranian and the US wrestling teams were supposed to take part in an exhibition meet in Arlington, Texas on Feb. 12.

Dabir has said the US government has not issued visas due to non-sporting reasons and invited the US wrestling team to travel to Iran for the match.
