Olympics refuses to discuss Iranian regime’s murder of wrestler

Iran Sheik and former Iranian Olympian wrestler urge Olympics to take action against regime


The agenda for Wednesday’s International Olympic Committee (IOC) executive board meeting omits the Iranian regime’s execution of the champion wrestler Navid Afkari, prompting calls for the president of the IOC Thomas Bach to include Afkari in its agenda and sanction the clerical regime in Tehran.

When asked by The Jerusalem Post if the IOC plans to sanction Iran’s regime and raise Afkari in its agenda, an unnamed IOC spokesperson told the Post, “For your information, you will find here the schedule for tomorrow’s IOC Executive Board committees meeting.”

The IOC schedule sent to the Post omitted Afkari.

Rob Koehler, the Director General of Global Athlete, a sports human rights advocacy organization, wrote on Twitter: “The Olympics Executive Committee meets Wednesday 7 October…How about under miscellaneous you include: 1. Suspending Iran @Olympic_ir #Justice4Navid #navidafkarai.”

Koehler included the twitter handle for Iran’s Olympic chapter and the hashtags in support of Navid Afkari.

The international outcry over the IOC and its president, Thomas Bach’s failure to include Navid Afkari in its agenda on Wednesday sparked a call from the former Olympic Iranian wrestler Hossein Khosrow Ali Vaziri, known as The Iron Sheik, to tweet to his over 518,000 followers on Tuesday: “AS FORMER OLYMPIC WRESTLER I DEMAND THE THOMAS BACH IOC PRESIDENT OF THE @Olympic@iocmedia YOU INCLUDE THE CASE OF THE IRANIAN REGIME MURDER OF INNOCENT CHAMPION THE NAVID AFKARI FOR TOMORROW AGENDA AND SANCTION IRAN”S REGIME.”
