Biography

Hamoon started practising Karate when he was 7 years old. Since then, he has never stopped and has followed his dreams. During his long career, he has achieved impressive results, such as becoming bronze medallist at the Karate World Championship in 2018, winning two Asian Champion titles, and several medals, including two gold, at Karate1 Premier League.

For security reasons, he left his country in 2019. Since then, he has been living and training with his wife in Canada. Upon arrival in his host country, he worked at an automotive company and kept training with full dedication and commitment to his dream: competing at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 at which karate was staged for the first time.

Hamoon did well to hang in there as he made it to the IOC Refugee Olympic Team Tokyo 2020 and finished in a very good 5th place, earning him an Olympic diploma. Hamoon continues to train and hosts many training camps to younger Canadian athletes.
