Iran’s Sexist Sports Federations Couldn’t Stop F. Farzaneh

Olympic sprinter F. Farzaneh of Iran competed in Tokyo without the backing of the Islamic Republic.

The Iranian government’s sports ministry, federation, and Olympic committee all ignored her.

Nonetheless, she made headlines when she became the first female Iranian runner to enter the Olympics in 57 years.

She covered her hair and shoulders with the hijab because doing so is compulsory in Iran.

Unfortunately, Iranians weren’t able to watch her compete on national television because her opponents didn’t wear hijabs.

In the 1964 Olympics, Simin Safamehr made history as the first Iranian woman to compete in the 100-meter dash. The games were held in Tokyo.

Blocked From Competing — But Making History Anyway

The sports federation did not back Fasihi’s attempt to qualify for the 2022 Asian Games.

Despite the fact that she had already won two medals in Asian tournaments and ten medals at the provincial and national levels.

Her spouse has encouraged her to keep training, and she has entered international tournaments without the backing of any governing athletic organisations.

But the Iranian athletics organisation became concerned when they learned Fasihi intended to participate internationally, and the Iranian ministry of sports soon joined in the concern.

If she wanted to compete without the hijab in a place other than Iran, that is. There then ensued heated online discussions regarding whether or not women’s athletes should be allowed to wear hijabs.

And whether or not they were limiting. But Fasihi didn’t remove her hijab before the competition.


Fasihi qualified via the universality quota, according to Peiman Fakhri, the deputy leader of Iran’s Olympic caravan.

One male and one female athlete from each country are eligible to compete in the Olympics thanks to the universality quota.

Nine Iranian women athletes have already qualified for the Tokyo Olympics thanks to Fasihi’s universality quota.
