Iranian American Sport Association

Inspired by the 2013 “Rumble on the Rails” wrestling exhibition matches where 3 traditional political rivals Iran, US, and Russia joined forces and successfully campaigned against the impending plans by the International Olympic Committee to drop wrestling from future games, and the 2014 U.S. Department of State’s Iran-USA sports diplomacy initiative, Khorasani founded IASA - Iranian American Sport and Culture Association, a Los-Angeles based 501c3 nonprofit organization - to help save his family sport, Olympic wrestling, and to bridge the sports gap between the two nations and support USA-Iran Sports Diplomacy.[5][6]
