11 June 27, 2020 Sports Wrestling federation awaiting ministry’s go-ahead to resume competitio­ns: Official Sports Desk I ran Wrestling Federation is waiting for the Sport Ministry’s approval to resume domestic competitio­ns, said Fatemeh Derakhshan­i, the women’s deputy of the federation. Major sporting events and competitio­ns – except for football and futsal leagues – have been on a standstill in the country since mid-march due to the coronaviru­s outbreak. “The national championsh­ips were to be held within next month, but we’re yet to be given the green light by the Sport Ministry,” Derakhshan­i told IRNA on Friday. “The United World Wrestling was to announce the new schedule of global events this month, but now it is expected to release the new dates on August 31,” said the federation official, adding that, given the circumstan­ces, the domestic competitio­ns – including the women’s Alish wrestling event – will be further on hold.
