Iran to send women weightlifters to intl contests

'We started weightlifting for Iranian women last year; and we hope to see their success in international competitions next year,' said Ali Moradi in Bushehr on Saturday.

In July 2011, IWF modified its rules to allow tight-fitting, body-length attire for the first time.

'Weightlifting is an Olympic sport open for all athletes to participate without discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, or national origin in accordance with the principles of the Olympic Charter and values,' said IWF President Tamas Ajan then. 'This rule modification has been considered in the spirit of fairness, equality and inclusion.'

Moradi also said that the federation is planning to send Iranian teenage students to international contests.
