Former NU wrestler Jordan Burroughs cheered in World Cup meet in Iran

Former University of Nebraska wrestler Jordan Burroughs, who defeated Sadegh Saeed Goudarzi of Iran on August 10, 2012 to become the Olympic champion at 74 kilos, was cheered in Iran at the World Cup freestyle competition in which he went 5-0 to lead the US to a third-place finish Feb. 21-22 in Tehran. Burroughs, a 2011 World champion, is now a perfect 43-0 on the Senior level.

The above CNN video comes via JoeMyGod, where we found the following comment from "Arthur" interesting:

The US government has screwed Iran big time - from overthrowing its government in the 50s, to supporting Saddam, including with chemical weapons, in his war against Iran; to classing their country, at a time it was governed by a moderate, as part of the axis of evil; to imposing sanctions that have bad effects on civilians, etc. Iranians have every right to dislike the US government. But, very likely, Iranians just don't see the need to extend to US civilians whatever feelings they have for the US government.
