Leader Thanks Olympic Squad

Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei welcomed Iranian athletes and coaches returning home from Rio 2016 Olympics, appreciating their efforts to bring joy to the people. In a message on Tuesday, the Leader praised members of the Iranian Olympic team, including sportswomen who competed in the games while wearing hijab, Tasnim News Agency reported. Ayatollah Khamenei's message reads, "To the sports delegation returning from the Olympics, to the champions who brought joy to the nation by winning medals, to the heroes who were deprived of what they deserved due to unfair refereeing, to the athletes whose lack of success makes their efforts and endeavors no less valuable, to the sportswomen who demonstrated to everyone the proud symbol of Iranian women's attire, to the brave lady who shone at the forefront of the squad in full hijab, and to the coaches and the country's veteran athletes, welcome back and I thank you all. We appreciate you." Iran finished 25th in Rio 2016 Olympics with eight medals (three gold, one silver and four bronze).
