Day 23 of World Wrestling Month! 49 North Wrestling's match of the day is the 84 kg gold medal match from the 2004 Canada Cup! 2004 World University Champion Pejman Dorostkar (Iran) battles 1999 World Champion and multiple time medalist Yoel Romero (Cuba). Romero is known for his explosive attacks and his sportsmanship, both of which are on display here. His method of apology for a butting of heads is not often matched.

Day 24 of World Wrestling Month! 49 North Wrestling's match of the day is a prime example of why we could use 10 weight classes at the World Championships, especially if the Olympic weights are cut to 6. For the 48 kg bronze medal at the 1985 Senior World Championships, Laszlo Biro (Hungary) faces Vassili Gogolev (USSR) in an action packed match!

Day 25 of World Wrestling Month! 49 North Wrestling's match of the day is the 68 kg bronze medal match from the 1993 Senior World Championships from Toronto, Canada!  From the USA, Townsend Saunders in blue faces Canada's Chris Wilson in red! An infamous story, Wilson had actually won his semi-final bout 2-1, but the officials overturned the victory for no apparent reason after the match had concluded. Not to be deterred, Wilson came back to win the bronze medal!

Wrestling makes the short list (along with squash and baseball) for the 2020 Games! Final vote in September, where the IOC general assembly can actually vote to keep wrestling as a CORE sport if they so choose!
