Goudarzi: Volleyball made the Olympic Possible
The Minister of Youth & Sport said: Volleyball made a dream of 52-year possible. I hope other sports would take the pattern to improve more.
As the public relations of volleyball federation reported, our national flag is so valuable for us all. Congratulation to all people for this qualification. He also appreciated all the efforts have been done in volleyball to elevate the level of this sport and indicated: this could not be surely possible without planning.
He appreciated the new head coach of national team, Raul Lozano along with his assistants and the national players who had a big share in this success. He also admired the way they worked technically and not politically since politics can harm sport in his view.
He further explicated: “The tribute is paid for two main reasons: first because they broke the 52-year drought of Olympic Qualification and second because they added to the Olympic quota of Iran and changed the record higher to 59 up to now. In 2012 London Olympic, Iran had only 51 tickets. He finally wished the best for all the athletes in Olympic Games.
