European Bronze medal in skiing on grass for Solghani

Tehran, Sept 10, IRNA- Mehdi Solghani, the only Iranian representative at the European Championship in skiing on grass in Italy, won the bronze medal with third place.

In this competition, with the presence of the world's leading skiers in Italy, Mehdi Solaghani, the representative of Iran, won the bronze medal in the big spiral.

Solghani was also in the 'Super J' and Small spiral, but by standing in fourth place, he lost the chance to reach one of the three top platforms.

Solghani's third title at the European Open Cup was that in the past few days, the Italian Embassy in Iran refused to issue a visa for two female athletes, and their participation in the world cup championship hosted by Italy is in ambiguity.

For the participation in the European Open Cup, which is a prelude to the World Cup, three athletes were to being deployed by the Ski Federation, but due to the delay of the Italian embassy, visas were not issued for two athletes of ski on the grass (Samin Davari and Hannan Karim Khani), and only Solghani was successfully deployed because of a personal and five-year visa.
