Sport Specific Information

Why this sport? "I started fencing by chance. First, I practised taekwondo, but after losing a match I decided to give it up. My brother was a fencer on the national team. I liked the sport and thanks to him I had a chance to train with other fencers on the national team. Gradually I became a fencer."

Other information RIO DISAPPOINTMENT
In 2020 he said he remained disappointed with his performance at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, where he lost 15-11 in the first round of the individual sabre event to Matyas Szabo of Germany. "I have been thinking about this since 2016 because I worked hard to get to the [2016] Olympics and I gave it away easily. I am still upset about it. I would not be so upset if I had lost 15-14. Therefore, I am trying to be a more worthy representative of Iran at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. I had the motivation four years ago [in 2016] but I did not have the experience I do now."
