Iran introduces new Federation President to IWF

The new President of the Weightlifting Federation of Iran, Hossein Rezazadeh, paid an introductory visit to the IWF headquarters to meet the IWF President, Dr. Tamás Aján. The IRIWF delegation included Darab Riahi, Vice President and Afshin Riahi, International Director. In the discussions with the IWF President and staff they touched subjects of interest for the Federation: structural, organisational issues, new development, coaching and education, future events, etc. The new Federation expects to raise further interest and participation in weightlifting also through the enormous respect their Olympic Champion and multiple world champion President Hossein Rezazadeh enjoys within and outside Iran.
