Iranians teaching Zurkhaneh to Europeans

Tehran, Sept 29, IRNA- Two Iranian coaches will hold training courses for several European teams in Belarus to teach them the Iranian traditional sport called 'Zurkhaneh.'

According to International Zurkhaneh Sports and Koshti Pahlevani Federation (IZSF), two well-known Iranian champions, Ali Jalijou (from the central province of Alborz) and Mohsen Golestanizadeh (from Khorasan Razavi Province in north eastern Iran) have been sent to Belarus to supervise training the European teams.

The two Iranians headed to Belarus at the request of IZSF.

In their week-long stay in the capital of Belarus, Minsk, the two Iranian coaches will train over 20 athletes from Ukraine, Russia, Belarus and Moldova.

The teams are preparing for the fifth Zurkhaneh Sports championship which will be held in the central city of Isfahan late November.
