Iranian canoeist Mojallali earns spot to Rio
Iranian canoeist Adel Mojallali Moghadam is headed to Rio after Kazakhstan’s Alexander Kornilov was disqualified from the Olympics for a doping violation.

“That's the best news I've heard. I always liked to participate at the Olympics. Now, I am the first Iranian athlete who take part in the canoeing event in Olympics,” Mojallali told Tasnim news agency.

“I will do my best in Olympics however I have enough time until the competition,” he added.

The rowing contests at the 2016 Summer Olympics will open on August 6 and run through August 13 at Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas in Copacabana. A total of 550 athletes, 331 men and 219 women, will be in action at fourteen medal events.
