Welcome Abolfazl Rezazadeh!

Defending Olympic champion, the man who holds all three weightlifting world records in the superheavyweight class—Hossein Rezazadeh—is now a father, and his son, born yesterday, was named in honor of the saint whose name Hossein shouts just before each attempt: Abolfazl.

Speaking to reporters in Iran yesterday, Hossein Rezazadeh said, "Today God granted me a healthy child; I'm so glad and think its birth is a good present from God to me in the 8th day of the new year. I hope the birth of my son would inspire me much more to keep creating glories for my country and would empower me for a better preparation for the 2004 Olympics."

Abolfazl Rezazadeh weighed four kilos at birth, so maybe he will continue in his father's mighty footsteps.
