TEHRAN - Nine Para athletes were elected as the members of Iran’s National Paralympic Committee (NPC) Athletes’ Council on Wednesday for a four-year term.

The Council will serve as a consulting body between the NPC and its athletes and should be the voice of all current, future and retired Para athletes. The Council’s mission is to ensure that the Para athletes can play the role at the decision-making processes both on and off the field of play.
