OPINION: Saeid Mollaei should be invited under IJF Flag

Part of the team of Iran couldn't compete at the World Championships in Tokyo. World Champion Saeid Mollaei was forced to quit the competition but proceeded but couldn't face Irsael's Sagi Muki for the sake and safety of his family. Mollaei was not allowed to fight Israelian colleagues, nor stand on the same podium. It’s not that they don’t want to fight, both want it, but they are forced not to take part. Mollaei was very sad and was informed in advance that maybe he could not fight the final or the bronze final as his Israelian sports rival Sagi Muki was separated from Iran and only in the final phase they could meet each-other.

 

The IJF invited a team of refugees in Tokyo and at various places in the IJF World Team and this could be a situation at the Olympic Games. Every fan would like to see Mollaei taken up into the refugee team or fighting under the IJF flag as the federation is not able to respect the Olympic Charter and its non-discrimination principle. Obviously we know that it’s not possible as these powers are beyond our sport.
