Iran’s Wrestling Official fails to get elected to FILA Board

For the 2nd time in the row,  Amir Reza Khadem, two time Olympic wrestler from Iran, has failed to get enough votes to be elected to the International Federations of Wrestlings.  He faced the challenge of defending his country’s position on women wrestling ( Iran does not allow it ),  women attending sporting events ( Iran does not allow it), and agreeing to live with another member of FILA, Israel. 

I guess despite some relaxations by President Rouhani,  Iran’s full acceptance into international sporting organizations will require serious attention by President Rouhani.
