In September, Iranian female weightlifter Poupak Basami broke her own record in the 2019 IWF World Championships in Pattaya, Thailand.
Basami stood 6th among the weightlifters of her weight in the IWF Championships after breaking her own record.
It was the first time in Iran's history that women, including Basami and her teammates, attended the World Weightlifting Championships.
It was in 2017 that the Iranian Weightlifting Federation announced officially that female athletes are allowed to compete in the world contests. Now, after two years from the announcement, the Iranian women can make history at the IWF World Championships on September 18-27.
International Weightlifting Federation has congratulated Iran for sending four female weightlifters to this year's world championships.
