Hadi Choopan will not compete at this year’s Mr. Olympia in September.
The 32 year old Hadi Choopan made a last attempt in hopes of getting his US visa approved.
However, it was rejected once more, which means that he is out of Mr. Olympia again.
The problem is that the new US visa policy is very hard on countries of Muslim origin, and Iran is on the blacklist of countries that are banned from entering the United States. The travel ban also includes Iraq, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia and Syria.
The decision has been revoked by the American state courts, but the Supreme Court upheld the travel ban.
Chopan who also i coached by top guru and fellow Persian Hany Rambod won his last show, the Portugal Pro. He won over another top class 212-competitor Nicolas Vulliod. In addition, The Persian Wolf was considered as a top threat at the Olympia.
When the Persian Wolf will compete again, is yet to be disclosed.
