Iranian wrestler wins gold, throws coach to celebrate

Fourth-Place Medal

Iran's Omid Haji Noroozi won a gold medal in Greco-Roman wrestling on Monday. His coach was so proud of him, he jumped up on the mat and gave his wrestler a big bear hug.


"Oh, hey coach! I'm really happy about this gold, too. I promise, I am not clenching may hands in the perfect grip for throwing you."


"Ha! Just kidding."


"Remember how I won a gold medal? Yeah, you can't stay mad at me."
