Elaheh Gholi Fallah, law student of Zanjan Islamic Azad University and the first Iranian female to qualify for a Paralympic Winter Games, could win the BP Courage Award.

According to an ISCA report, Elaheh Gholi Fallah finished 11th in the cross-country sprint in PyeongChang.

Courage is one of the Paralympic Movement's four values, and is displayed in different shapes and forms each day by Para-athletes, teams and IPC member organizations.

“It is so exciting to win this award among millions of athletes with impairment all around the world,” Fallah said. “It makes me more committed to Paralympic Movement and to the people with impairment in the world, specifically Iranian women, to help them participate in the social events and contribute to their inclusion.”

Duncan Blake, BP’s Head of Brand, said: “Elaheh’s achievements are remarkable, and this award is testament to the courage she has shown not just as a sportsperson, but also as a mentor to the next generation. Elaheh is a truly worthy recipient of the BP Courage Award.”
