Afsharzadeh plays down Iranian Hercules’ absence in Olympic

TEHRAN, July 11 (MNA)--Head of Iran’s Weightlifting Federation has ruled out Friday the speculations over Hossein Rezazadeh’s absence in the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

“Without a doubt, Rezazadeh will participate in the Olympics. He is in shape now and set to win his third Olympic gold medal in Beijing,” said Bahram Afsharzadeh.

The Iranian Hercules has not participated in any competition after the 2006 Asian Games which was held in Doha, Qatar.

Rezazadeh has already won two gold medals in Sydney 2000 and Athens 2004.
