Last week Iranian wrestling fans cheered on U.S. Olympic gold medalist Jordan Burroughs (above) and other American wrestlers at an international meet in Tehran, hopefully proof that wrestling is the universal sport of peace and respect. Jordan won his 2012 medal by defeating Iranian champion Sadegh Saeed Goudarzi. Last week's meet went to the Iranian wrestlers, however, with the US following Russia in third place.
