Here, you read Iran men's sitting volleyball head coach interview with worldparavolley.org about team performance at the 2023 Astana Championships and his objectives
for the upcoming events:
Even with multiple laurels including Asian titles, World Championships and Paralympics medals, Iran coach Hadi Rezaei sees no sense in stopping what his program has set forth.
“We have not even really started yet.
Every game is just the start of our team for the next chapter. In this
championship, we did not bring five of our most experienced athletes. In the
Asian Para Games in Hangzhou, we will have another combination of players,”
Iran’s coach Hadi Rezaei said after the final match.
“Our short-term goal is Hangzhou
2023, our mid-term is Paris 2024, and we hope to take our long-term goal all
the way to Los Angeles 2028 Paralympics,” he added.
