TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Newly-appointed Vice President of the Islamic Republic of Iran Volleyball Federation (IRIVF) Fariba Mohammadian says that she is going to empower Iranian women in volleyball.
Mohammadian replaced Mahnaz Shaddel who was working in the position as caretaker.
She has a doctorate in physical education, management and planning while participating in the national volleyball coaching and refereeing courses.
“I will follow the goals of Iran Volleyball Federation to promote women’s volleyball; the way to get to it is not surely simple and I will seek the help of the volleyball officials to empower women in volleyball,” Mohammadian said.
The Persians finished in sixth place in the 2018 Asian Women’s Club Championship in Ust-Kamenogorsk, Kazakhstan after going down in straight sets to Indonesia’s Garuda VC in the 5th-6th place playoff.
