TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran's national wrestling team won the 2014 men's Greco-Roman Wrestling World Cup after defeating the Russians in the final in Tehran on Friday.

The Iranian men's team overpowered the Russian wrestlers 6-2 in front of more than 5,000 fans in Shohaday-e Haftom-e-Tir Stadium in Central Tehran this afternoon.

This was the Iranians' revenge from the Russians who beat Iran in the last year final and stopped their chain of victories after three years. Iran had won three straight titles in the wrestling world cups in 2010, 2011 and 2012.

This is the first time Iran's Greco-Roman wrestlers win the world cup at home.

Top 10 Greco-Roman wrestling teams from 2013 world championships were present in the competitions.

Iran was drawn in Pool B along with South Korea, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Finland while Pool A consisted of Russia, Hungary, the US, Turkey and Kazakhstan.

Iran had defeated all the teams in their pool before meeting the Russians in the final.

Iran's Greco-Roman team made the history by winning three gold medals in the 2012 Olympic games in London.
