No Iranian woman ever medaled in the Olympics before the revolution. Women participated for the first time at the Tokyo Asian games in athletics. The women's volleyball team won the first bronze medal at the Asian games in Bangkok. Iran's best performance at the international level was at the Asian Games in Tehran. The fencing foil team won a gold medal and an individual silver and a bronze medal. The sports programming for girls and women were minimal at best during the Pahlavi Era. The main objective of the women's sports program was to convey an image of modernity. Schoolgirls wearing sexy miniskirts and shorts marched in official celebrations and government parades.

With the World Cup looming this summer, like the Olympics, it's every four years, this story has taken on a whole new magnitude. Breitbart reports the Iranian Women's National Soccer team is getting a LOT of criticism from other nations after learning 8 members of the squad are actually men. That's just over half the team.

Eight of Iran's women's football team are actually men awaiting sex change operations, it has been claimed. The country's football association was accused of being "unethical" for knowingly fielding eight men in its women's team. Mojtabi Sharifi, an official close to the Iranian league, told an Iranian news website: "[Eight players] have been playing with Iran's female team without completing sex change operations. On Wednesday, authorities reportedly ordered gender testing of the entire national squad and leading league players. The names of the players thought to be male were not revealed. In , the country's football governing body introduced random checks after it was revealed that four national team players were either men who had not completed sex change operations, or were suffering from sexual development disorders. Gender change operations are legal in Iran according to a fatwa - or religious ruling - pronounced by the late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, spiritual leader of the Islamic revolution. The law contrasts with the strict rules governing sexual morality under the country's Sharia legal code, which forbids homosexuality and pre-marital sex.
