Iran athlete auctions gold medal for quake victims
Kianoush Rostami says he is "returning my Olympic gold medal to my people".
The devastating quake that hit the Iran-Iraq border killed 400 and wounded 10,000 more. In the wake of this devastation, two Olympic gold medalists from Iran–Kianoush Rostami and Sareh Javanmardi–are generously auctioning off their prized medals to raise money for earthquake relief efforts.
