Haider Nawzad

Haider Nawzad

Haider Nawzad is an Iraqi rower. He and his rowing partner, Hamza Hussein, qualified for the men's double sculls event at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing through a Tripartite Commission invitation. They were last-minute qualifiers for the Beijing Games, obtaining a place when North Korea declined an invitation to send rowers, and the invitation was reallocated to Iraq. They are two of only four competitors on the 2008 Iraqi Olympic team. Nawzad and Hussein train on the Tigris river in central Baghdad. Nawzad was living in Sweden, but returned to Iraq to train for the Olympics.
