Iranian Wrestler Flips over Opponent for Unbelievable Takedown

Tristan ThornburghSocial Media StaffAugust 12, 2014

This year's FILA Junior World Championships may not earn a lot of national media attention, but Iran's Iman Sadeghikoukandeh takedown against Russia's Rashidov Gadzhimurad certainly warrants it.

With his leg pinned while standing, Sadeghikoukandeh somehow kept his balance, eventually flipping over Gadzhimurad for the takedown. 

What's almost equally incredible is how he earns a mild golf clap from the crowd. Are you not entertained?!

Sadeghikoukandeh went on to win gold at the tournament.
