60kg: Omid Noroozi (IRI) dec. Revas Lashkhi (GEO) 1-0, 1-0
In a very physical bout with lots of headbutting and brawling, we went scoreless through the first minute and a half. Noroozi won the period by defending on bottom in par terre.
Noroozi came out aggressive in the second period and forced the action. But it wasn’t into the second minute when he secured the decisive takedown when he gained position on the edge with an underhook.
Afterward, in perhaps the best celebration ever, Noroozi launched his coach, who came up to hug him, straight to his back!
