A group of American freestyle wrestlers arrived in the capital to participate in an international tournament, Iran's state television reported Monday. The report said the team that traveled to Teheran included seven wrestlers and three coaches. The two-day competition will begin Wednesday. More than 100 athletes and coaches from the US and Iran have traveled to each others' countries since an exchange program was launched in 2007, but the exchanges have not always gone as planned. Iran invited the US women's badminton team to compete in a tournament in February and then denied its players visas, saying there was no time to process their applications.
