The United States’ top freestyle wrestlers have been barred from a much-anticipated international tournament in Iran this month, prohibited by the host nation from entering the country in retaliation for President Trump’s recent travel ban. freestyle wrestlers were slated to compete in the World Cup tournament Feb. The American squad was to include Kyle Snyder, the Woodbine, Md., native who won gold at the Rio Olympics, and Jordan Burroughs, the three-time world champion and gold medalist from the 2012 Summer Games.
The decision, first announced Friday by the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA), is in response to President Trump’s executive order temporarily banning the entry of citizens from Iran and six other Muslim-majority countries as well as refugees worldwide into the United States. Rich Bender, the executive director of USA Wrestling, said Friday afternoon that he still hadn’t been formally notified that the American wrestlers would not be granted visas but was “extremely disappointed” by the news. Shortly after Trump’s order went into effect, the Iranian government announced it would limit visas to Americans and threatened retaliatory measures.
“We believe that all sportspersons must be treated on the basis of equality, and the absence of this can never be compensated,” the athletes’ commission said in a statement.
“We hope that the work between the USOC and the US government will bring a solution that has a minimal impact on athletes, events and the sports world as a whole.” Trump’s order has drawn particular attention to the United States’ attempt to host the Summer Olympics in 2024, with some longtime Olympic observers saying it could have a negative impact on a bid by Los Angeles.
