Iran’s Sporting Dreamers
As the wrestling world comes to grips with the impact of the IOC’s decision, several media members around the world have started to tell the stories of wrestlers in their home countries whose lives will be adversely affected by the decision.
No country has more to lose than Iran. In the following documentary we get to watch first hand as their wrestlers strive to better the position and standing of their family through sport. The sport means something to the people, and as we’ve seen in recent weeks, wrestling can be a powerful form of diplomacy.
There is no questioning the courage and spirit of the Iranian Pehawan’s and we’d all benefit from watching the documentary and taking away lessons about commitment, and the power of pursuing a dream.
