A rare photo of Persian delegation at the 1972 Olympics Games in Munich, West Germany.
The photo has been taken by Ali Ghashghayi and has been originally published in the Persian-language weekly TAMASHA.
I just receive the magazine from Tehran and though it's a wonderful idea to share this great photo with the visitors of this blog.
For 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, Iran (Persia) sent a delegation of 50 competitors who participated in 33 events in 7 sports. Two competitors in the football tournament did not take part in any matches.
