adi Choopan can't participate at the Olympia 2018

Due to the Travel Ban on some countries including Iran issued by Donald Trump, Iranian Hadi Choopan is kept out of Olympia this year. Hadi “The Persian Wolf” was qualified to compete at Mr. Olympia after winning the IFBB Portugal Pro 2018.

At first, Hadi attempted to surpass the travel ban, by all means, to participate at the Olympia this year. These rumors were spread not by Hadi but by people around him. They claimed we would see Choopan compete in the 212 Division of the Olympia. However, now Hadi confirmed he will 100% not be able to arrive to compete for the crown at Olympia.

It’s a pity because Hadi has really high chances to defeat Flex Lewis and become a new champion in Men’s 212 division. He can’t compete in the USA due to Trump’s travel ban.

Hadi confirmed he won’t be able to compete at the Olympia this year in his Instagram post calling that problem “Discrimination”.

Choopan is sure no one would be able to fill his spot. He is sure his spot is reserved!

The bodybuilding fans are really unfortunate this year, while they can’t see Hadi Choopan prove to be the best in the 212 division. Now, as Hadi is out from the Olympia, Flex Lewis has more chances to keep his crown this year.

Hadi looks to not have lost his hopes and he will surely continue to fight and search for the ways to compete in the United States in future. We can’t know whether this happens or not, but Hadi has a strong will and he might find the way. He can fight as strong as he trains!

Let’s wish Hadi luck in his search of the way out. We all hope to see him at the Olympia stage next year!

To all my friends and fans around the world, I am pleased to say special thanks to my one and only one amazing pro trainer @HanyRambod for all of his great supports until now. my brother @flex_lewis which I am pretty sure will present a great show for audiences and wish him the best of luck! A great thanks to the president of @ifbb_pro_league Mr.Jim Manion . IFBB is where all of us; pro bodybuilders, get the genuinity of our profession from and I have special respect for them. With the great support of my sponsor and my management team, through hiring a professional lawyer for US visa ,currently my visa application is on process and due to the Travel Ban for Iranian citizens it takes longer than usual and obviously the entire process has nothing to do with anyone or organization and it’s all base on the US Immigration decision. I am confident the future is mine💪🏻 با احترام به تمام طرفداران و دوستدارنم در سراسر دنیا بدین وسیله قدردان زحمات بی شائبه مربی پرافتخار خودم اقای ”هنی رمبد” و شرکت Evogen Nutrition میباشم. همچنین بعنوان یک بدنساز حرفه ای بدون شک موفقیت و ورود به دنیای حرفه ای خودم رو به IFBB مدیون و همواره برای این سازمان و مدیریت محترمش جناب اقای جیم مانیا احترام خاصی قائل میباشم. برای دوست و برادر پرتلاشم اقای فلکس لوییس هم ارزوی موفقیت دارم و میدونم که بازهم خوش خواهد درخشید. در خصوص امور ویزای بنده برای کشور امریکا علیرغم زمان کم و خوب نوع ویزای درخواستی از اداره مهاجرت امریکا که شامل دو بخش میباشد، موافقت بخش اول با موفقیت انجام شد و درحال حاضر در بخش دوم پروسه ویزا ،پرونده من درحال گذراندن مراحل اداری میباشید که بواسطه قانون ممنوعیت سفر برای شهروندان ایران عموما تصمیم گیری برای اعلام نتیجه ،صدور و یا عدم صدور ویزا مشمول زمان نسبتا طولانی و نوعن نامعینی میگردد. درهرحال انتظار من از شما بجز حمایت های همیشگیتون ،جلوگیری از هرگونه بی احترامی و شایعه پراکنی میباشد و من نوید و اطمینان موفقیت ها وسربلندی شما در آینده ای بسیاز نزدیک رو به شما خواهم داد.
