Ilna News Agency reports that Urmia's Al-Qadir Hall hosted the country's first national bodybuilding competition. In this sporting event, Masoud Ghadirian placed second. The following are the winners:

  1. First rank (gold medalist): Kambiz Samadi, from Tehran Province
  2. Second rank (silver medalist): Masoud Ghadirian, from Isfahan Province
  3. Third rank (bronze medalist): Kianoosh Khorramipour, from Alborz Province
  4. Fourth rank: Armin Fazeli, from Lorestan Province
  5. Fifth rank: Mustafa Barghousi, from Khuzestan Province
  6. Sixth rank: Aliasghar Kabuli, from Mazandaran Province


The referees' judgment was slammed when the results of the +220 lbs. category were announced at the end of the competitions.

Popular Iranian bodybuilder Masoud Ghadirian, who is renowned for his moral character and good manners, not only refrained from objecting to the results but also cordially congratulated Kambiz Samadi, a rival, on his victory.

Despite the fact that the top three winners of these competitions were invited to compete in the Asian Bodybuilding Championship, Kianoush Khorramipour (the bronze medalist of the national competitions) opted out. As a result, Kambiz Samadi and Masoud Ghadirian competed on the Asian Cup stage against their rivals.


Ten days after the end of the national competitions, the Asian Bodybuilding Championship was held. The two competitors, Kambiz Samadi and Masoud Ghadirian, who had placed first and second respectively in the 2022 national competitions, faced off against one another in these contests.

Masoud Ghadirian ought to have won first place in the national competitions rather than Kambiz Samadi, according to the critics, because Kambiz Samadi's abdominal muscle swell in the national and Asian competitions was a violation of international bodybuilding rules.


Masoud Ghadirian, on the other hand, made no protests and accepted the decisions of the referees in national competitions.

 Finally, he won first place and the gold medal in the Asian Cup. He also took home the gold medal at the Romanian International Grand Prix in 2021.

Since 2020, the Iranian national bodybuilding competitions have received a lot of attention, whereas national competitions in Iran were not well received prior to that.


The smack-talking of Masoud Ghadirian and his opponents appears to be one of the factors that contributed to the attraction and popularity of bodybuilding competitions, particularly in the +220 lbs. category.

 Bodybuilders are eagerly awaiting the competition between this Iranian bodybuilder and his opponents because he has won the first title in three national competitions since 2020.
