The president of Islamic Azad University has been selected as a top director of private sector sports in the ceremony acknowledging the athletic champions of the country.

According to Iran Student Correspondents Association (ISCA), Dr. Hamid Mirzadeh stated that IAU pays special attention to sports and pointed to Dr. Dadkan’s significant role in IAU’s progress in this department, such as establishing the Cultural-Sport Club and the presence of 340 champions as coaches, athletes, and managers.
