Iran Rugby concretized an idea I had since some time ago: a sort of Olympic Games with individual competitions based on rugby skills. "The first Combined Rugby Skills Challenge". The federation article doesn't give details but judging by the images on their social media there were competitions of speed race, of touch throwing, of tackling, of kicking to the posts. I would add (if they there were not already) competitions of precision in the pass, maybe of high kicks's ball catching...
This sort of games could seem a bit useless in normal times but it could result more meaningful and useful right during a social distancing period

Results...

Gentlemen
First: Moin Vahedi 20.96 points
Second: Ali Fadaeizadeh 23.20 points
Third: Mohammad Mehdi Ghamari 26.25 points

Women
First: Hanieh Kiani. 23.75 points
Second: Zeynab Khadempour 24.29 points
Third: Mehr Negar Farrokh Manesh 26.20 points
