Iranian weightlifter puts gold medal up for auction for earthquake victims



An Iranian weightlifter has put his Rio 2016 gold medal up for auction to raise money for the victims of last week's deadly 7.3-magnitude earthquake near the Iran-Iraq border.
Kianoush Rostami, 26, announced the news on his Instagram page.
More than 400 people were killed and close to 10,000 injured in the quake.
The western Kermanshah province is the worst-affected area, with hundreds of homes destroyed and some residents sleeping outdoors in the cold.

Mr Rostami, himself from Kermanshah, said he was "taking a step, however small" to help those devastated by the tremor.
"I am returning my Rio 2016 Olympics gold medal - which actually belongs to them - to my people," he wrote in a widely-shared Instagram post yesterday, adding that he had not slept since the incident.
"I will put my medal up for auction. All the proceedings will go to those hit by the earthquake."

Good on him. You don't often hear "good news" stories from that part of the world. This should be headlines.
