In the paper today, an upset Iranian wrestler ordered to throw his match against the Russian by his coach. Why? Because the coach was following orders. Iranians are not allowed to compete against Israelis, and if he beat the Russian - which he was doing easily - he would have had to face an Israeli. Can't have that. So he basically surrenders and lets the Russian roll him all over the mat.

So why is Iran permitted to compete in international sports again?
