Al Navidi's Athletic Achievements

I became very active in sports ever since I graduated from high-school in 1977. In high-school, just like any other Iranian youth, my favorite and only sport was soccer. I would always get depressed those days that our gym teacher, Mr. Jaberi, would make us either run, play basketball, or engage in any sport other than soccer. After high-school and after I moved to the U.S., since I did not have a lot of friends to play soccer with, my interest in soccer slowly faded and I became more interested in individual sports such as tennis, running, cycling and swimming.

It was shortly after my interest in these individual sports that I decided to compete in some events, both to establish a goal for myself and to quench my thirst for competition.

Since 1991, I have been competing as an amateur triathlete in triathlon races worldwide. My accomplishments include 6 Ironman triathlons including Ironman Mont Tremblant in 2013, Ironman Coeur D'Alene in 2012, Ironman Arizona in 2010 , Ironman Canada in 2008, Ironman USA Lake Placid in 2007 and The Great Floridian in 1998, 25+ Half-Ironman distance triathlons, and 250+ other types of races. I have also competed in 5 separate World Triathlon Championship (ITU) races representing Iran. I have won my age group and placed top three in my age group in several triathlons sponsored by The Triathlantic Association, Piranha Sports and The Columbia Triathlon Association. As of 2014, I was nationally ranked 1,241st in the country.

Aside from the sport of Triathlon, I am also an avid skier and runner and have competed in 54 marathons and ultra-marathons in 34 states + DC, including Boston (3), New York City (4), Marine Corps (6), Chicago, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Miami, Los Angeles , Houston, Steamtown (PA), Myrtle Beach, Seattle, Detroit, Hartford, New Jersey, Delaware, Nashville Country Music, St. George (Utah), Arizona R&R, NC Outer Banks, New Orleans Mardis Gras, R&R DC Marathon and Pittsburgh marathon. I also belong to the 50 States Marathon Club, which tracks runners running a marathon in all 50 states.
