Tehran, Iran, Jul. 20 – Iran will no longer be permitted to host international wrestling events because of its refusal to allow women to take part in bouts as well.

The head of Iran’s Wrestling Federation announced that FILA, the main international body in charge of wrestling competitions, had banned the Islamic Republic from hosting games for all international and Asian championships.

The ban was put in place since Iran refused to host women’s competition in the framework of wrestling tournaments. Iran’s theocratic leaders have restricted women’s sports to a few fields deemed permissible under the country’s strict religious rules.
