Iran bids to host World Taekwondo Championships

 

 
The meeting was attended by the President of the National Olympic Committee Kiumars Hashemi, the President of the WTF Chungwon Choue, the Secretary General of the World Federation Payman Rafati as well as the Iranian Taekwondo Federation President Seyed Mohammad Pouladgar.
 
Hashemi referred to Iran’s position in the world championship adding “Iran possesses one of the world’s most successful federations so that Mr. Pouladgar managed to enter the executive committee of the National Olympic Committee in the first round by receiving the majority of votes.”
 
“Currently, Iran’s taekwondo holds world titles in all age groups which is rooted in the millions of dollars investment in the sport on the part of the government; however, we believe WTF is not offering necessary attention to all the achievements,” he added.
 
Hashemi went on to state that “development of taekwondo in Iran has benefited the region as well with many countries participating in Iranian training courses while WTF does not seem to be lenient with Iran’s taekwondo and hereby we make some legitimate requests.”
