Ali Moradi Re-Elected as Iranian Weightlifting President

The President of the Iranian Weightlifting Federation, Ali Moradi has been confirmed for another four-year term. In an election, he secured 22 of the 43 available votes.

During his time as President, Moradi has been instrumental in enabling Iranian women to begin competing in weightlifting. His re-election means that process looks set to continue and we will see more female competitors from Iran at international competitions.

In his response to the election result, Moradi said: “I would first like to thank everyone for giving me an opportunity to serve as president of weightlifting federation for more four years. We are looking for positive actions and sustainable development. This is my last four-year in the federation and I want to do my best in the post,”
