"Though we had hoped for a different outcome from Iran's Foreign Ministry, we appreciate the complex nature of this decision," said Nenad Lalovic, president of United World Wrestling, the sport's international ruling body, said in an email to the AP. "We are currently working to find a solution for the freestyle World Cup as soon as possible."
"We had for the whole tournament, maybe hundreds of matches and one or two situations were made doubtful, I would say. I think the situation is much better than we had before. Much, much better. Of course, we need time to cure all our diseases," Lalovic said.
