Team Persia

by amirkabear4u

I personally think Iran's olympic team done very well so far and I wanted to be the first to congratulate them.

In fact beside olympic competition they also showed they are great achievers considering the present political situation.

Until yesterday, 9th Aug, they were ahead of Japan in gold medals.

I am sure there are a few more medals to come.

I wish them all great and small GOOD LUCK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

امام نقی در دیدار با برندگان المپیک سامرا


اگر هزار مدال طلا در المپیک کسب کنید و در تمام رشته ها هم موفق باشید، چند نفر را می فرستیم که از دیوار سفارت مردم بالا روند و آبروی شما را ببرند. اینجوری نیست که غرور ملی و افتخار برای شما مردم عجم باشد؛ اسلام هم باید خود را این وسط نشان دهد تا دنیا به اسلام توجه کنند نه به مدالهای طلا ی شما!
از فیروز فرستاده خدای عزیز!

Pahlavans standing at 14th out of 205 countries

I agree and congratulations. They represent the land of  Iran - and it's befitting to celebrate their win, while being mindful of keeping politics out of sports. 

As for medals - the official London 2012 Olympic site - also ranks by Gold (unlike the US press.) It makes sense to me. In a soccer game, the person who wins is what counts - that's the nature of sports. So ranking by Gold is inkeeping with the nature of the sporting world.

Iran ranks 14th right now on the official site: 


It's also touching to see the roots of all the "Pahlavan" sports showing themselves - even in athletics, it was Discus that Iran won. Overall, a good Olympics for all of Iranian heritage. 


If you want to be the first to congratulate them ...
