Olympic gold medalist Hossein Tavakkoli was picked to steer Iran’s weightlifting team.

Tavakkoli, 37, replaces Bahman Zare’ who quit the job after more than one year, citing ‘personal’ reasons.

Tavakkoli snatched the gold medal in the 105kg category at 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney.

He belongs to a golden generation of Iranian weightlifters who starred in international competitions in the 2000s.

Tavakkoli earlier coached Iran’s junior and U-23 sides.
