A further IHF GRTP course, this time especially for Asian Referees, took place from 17-24 October 2014 in Isfahan, I.R. of Iran. The course was led by the two IHF PRC Members Roland Bürgi and Dawud Tawakoli. Official course participants were referee couples from CHN, IRI (2x), IRQ, JOR, KAZ, KOR, OMA, THA; the couples from CHN and KOR were women couples. Furthermore, 6 national couples from Iran (4 women and 2 men) took the opportunity to join the course as guests. Besides the important theoretical part with lectures about Rule 8 (Progressive Punishment and Offensive Foul), a summary of special IHF teaching advices, moving paths and positioning as well as lectures on pivot and wing situations, the referees also had to undergo the usual fitness and rule knowledge tests. About 40 national championship games were available for praxis work with the GRTP referees.
The team of the local organizing committee, under the direction of the president of the Isfahan Handball Association, Mr Faramarz MEYABADI, did an excellent job during the whole course – and besides the whole infrastructure for the course, they also organized a big press conference with TV and many journalists prior to it. Many important guests from politics, the Iranian Handball Federation, the National Olympic Committee and other guests of honour were present at the opening and closing ceremonies.
The couple from IRQ HUSSEIN Khalid / IMRAN Fadhil, who already participated in courses in Fukuoka, JAP and Doha, QAT were awarded with the IHF badge after a further successful course, this time in Isfahan.
