According to Azad News Agency (ANA), Ebrahim Ghajar, student of civil engineering at Nour branch of Islamic Azad University, ranked first in the X World Kurash Senior Championship games held in Khorramabad, Iran, with 152 athletes from 28 countries participating.

Ghajar earned the gold medal in the open weight category. This came among the outstanding victories of Iran's Kourash team, which bagged 2 gold, 1 silver and 3 bronze medals over the two-day international event.

The X World Kurash Senior Championship games concluded with the Iranian team coming second. Uzbekistan claimed first place and Turkmenistan took third.

Kurash is one of the oldest martial arts ever practiced, dating back to at least three and a half thousand years ago. It encompasses a number of ancient folk wrestling traditions from the Turkic peoples, taking on the form of upright jacket grappling with no groundwork, in which athletes aim to throw eachother off their feet.
