Description

Sports and athletic exercises were fundamental to the daily pursuits of the people of Ancient Iran. The religious teaching of Zoroastrianism advocated physical strength, mental power and courage, which were required for defending the homeland when need arose. Sportsmen thus held special status in society. The tradition has survived to the present day with Iranian victories in the Olympics.

At this one-day symposium, historians and practitioners of Iranian sports come together to explore the history and the achievements of Iranian sportsmen/women, past and present.
