UWW accepts Iran’s proposal for Muslim women’s singlet

July 10, 2017

Iran’s Wrestling Federation says that the United World Wrestling (UWW) has accepted its proposal to allow the women wrestlers to participate in the competition with Islamic dress code.

Iran offered the suggestion in December last year in the center of United World Wrestling Committee of Associated Styles in Istanbul, Turkey.

According to media reports, Iran is set to host a three-a-side women wrestling tournament with Iranian and foreign countries.

The International Basketball Federation (FIBA) has already agreed a new rule to come into force in October this year that will allow players to wear a headgear that minimizes the risk of injury and is the same color as a team's kit.
