General
LACK OF FUNDING
In 2014 he complained about the lack of funding for most sports in Iran. "I think the system is ill. Why do footballers make so much money and we don't? If there is no money, there shouldn't be any for anyone. It's wrong that there is money for one sport and not for the others. I had to sell my car to go to the 2012 Olympic Games in London. I made the ill-advised decision to quit football in order to pursue long jump. I did it because of my passion and talent for long jump, but only a fool would practise a sport with such a low income."
