  • Description

    Empress Farah of Iran and her children arrived at Teheran's Sports Stadium just in time on Wednesday to see their contryman Hashem Ghanbari hand a gold-medal-winning defeat to Yasuo Nagatomo of Japan in the Greco-Roman Wrestling finals of the Seventh Asian Games.

    The Empress arrived ar her ringside seat just as the favoured Ghanabi took the Japanese down to the floor for a three-count shoulder-hold, taking the score from four-all at the beginning of the third and last round to four-seven in his favour.

    Seconds late Ghanabi took another single-hold point to take the score to four-eight against Negatomo. That score remained until the final whistle went at the end of the three-minute round, giving Iran its eight straiig gold of the day.

    Iranian wrestlers won eight of the ten greco-roman events on Wednesday (11th September), boosting their gold-medal rating from Tuesday's third-place tie with North Korea to a 22-gold-medal second place below Japan but above The People's Republic of China.

    In the 74 kilogram event shown in this film -- one of the closest matches of the day -- Japan's Nagatomo finally placed third after South Korea's Kang Yong Sik. Japan won the two other greco-roman classes that were not taken by the Iranians.
