Iran's super heavyweight Behdad Salimi says he does his best to book a quota place for the 2016 Olympic Games.

Salimi has had surgery to repair the torn ACL in his left knee in November.
He had suffered the severe injury in the training.
“At the moment, I just focus on my recovery. My doctors say my recovery is going well,” Salimi told ISNA.
“I have not earned my quota place yet, however I will do my best to participate in Olympics but sometimes the events are out of our hands,” he added.
“I cannot accompany the team in Kish Island’s training camp since my doctor recommended me to stay in Tehran but I will join the team in the next camps,” Salimi said.
The weightlifter won the gold medal in the men’s +105-kilogram category of the weightlifting competition of the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
