Breaking the taboo:
Nassim Hassan Pour, 19, sharpens her shooting skills during
a training session at the Azadi stadium in Tehran.
She is the only Iranian woman who will participate in this Olympics.
The other members of Iran's 39-member team are all men.
Pour will take part in the 10-metre air pistol. She entered her
first official competition in 2002, and took third place at the
2003 Asian Championships.
