Finally a Medal: A Golden One

Iran gained the first Olympic medal today after 11 days! Hossein Reza Zadeh in 105+ class of weightlifting repeated his gold medal which was won in Sydney Olympic. This is Iran's first medal and there's still hope for wrestlers and martial artists (tae kwon do).
Sajad Barzi in 120 Kg class was the best wrestler in Greek-Roman style who lost to American opponent and couldn't get the bronze medal. That was the last fight for Gardner. He announced his retirement after that match.
