NPC President Dr. Karegary, on Wednesday, visited two national preparatory camps of Hangzhou Asian Para Games.


Iran NPC, Tehran: Dr. Ghafoor Karegary, NPC President and Dr. Saeid Solgi, NPC Sports Manager paid a visit to national camps of the women’s sitting volleyball and para powerlifting TID staged by Iran Sports Federation for the Persons with Disabilities (IRISFD) in Tehran, on Wednesday (8 June).
Speaking among the IRISFD’s officials, sitting volleyball players and technical staff, Dr. Karegary pointed that Iranian Women’s Para athletes are so talented and hardworking.

"We attend in the national preparation camps to emphasize that Iran Paralympic Committee is ready to support National Federations, para athletes and teams to meet their current needs and support them," Mr. President stated.

NPC aims at sending Iran delegation to Hangzhou with a minimum quantity in population size and maximum quality in performance. To defend our Asian ranking, we have mainly focused on our medal table forecast at the Asian Para Games (APG).
However, female athletes are under the overall umbrella of the NPC Iran, and therefore we will send them to APG even if they rank fourth in the events.

Therefore, women not only have a responsibility to be prepared for upcoming Hangzhou and try to reflect their values and capabilities in Para Asian Games, but they should also do their best to strengthen themselves for Paris 2024 and LA 2028 Paralympic Games.

Iran national women sitting volleyball squad has the required potential to succeed at the top levels as well as men’s side.
