Question Why are Iranians so strong?

Iranians have now become a force to be reckoned with in Olympic Weightlifting. What is it that makes them so strong?? It can not be mere coincidence - this phenomenon is the result of something that wasn't there before. I am guessing probably diet or the environment. Superior training too, but...
