After the fall of Soviet Union, Iagorashvili represented his birth country of Georgia, before marrying US modern pentathlete Mary Beth Larsen in 1996 and gaining US citizenship. Later representing the United States, Iagorashvili won world relay titles in 1997 and 2000, individual silver at the 1998 World Championships, relay silver in 2004 and relay bronze in 1999.
