Saeid Mollaei Dedicates Silver Medal to His “Good Friends” The Israelis

It has been widely reported how judoka Saeid Mollaei – formerly of Iran – dedicated (at least partially) his Olympic silver medal to Israel.

None of these reports actually showed footage of the comments, which I thought was a shame, since hearing them is so much more impactful.

Thankfully (with some help from Uri), I can bring you footage of his gracious comments.

What a mensch. Well done Saeid!
