The 2017 IWF World Weightlifting Championships in Anaheim, USA are approaching fast. This page will be update throughout the event. This happened during our stay in Albania for European Juniors, but now it’s official. Other Albanian team members got their visas approved. I went back to the US Embassy in Dubai [there is no US embassy in Iran] and presented my credentials, even taking several million with me to prove to them that I would return [proving the will to return was one of the main issues].
