Ehsan Mohajer Shojaei (Persian: احسان مهاجر شجاعی ‎‎, born 21 March 1983 in Borujerd) is an Iranian middle distance track athlete who specialized in the 800 metres. Mohajer Shojaei was a bronze medalist in the 2006 Asian Games and 2011 Asian Athletics Championships, a competitor at the 2008 Summer Olympics, and a gold medalist at the 2007 Summer Universiade (his first gold medal in an international competition). He was born only one day off of the birth date of fellow countryman Sajjad Moradi, with whom Shojaei ran numerous 800 metres races in international competition.

Running career

Mohajer Shojaei made his debut on the world stage at the age of 19, when he ran a time of 1:50.08 (min:sec) in the 800 metres race at the 2002 Asian Junior Athletics Championships in Thailand.

He won his first gold medal at the 2007 Summer Universiade, running the 800 in 1:46.04, which at the time was his personal best. From this point he gained form for next year's Olympic Games. However, Shojaei did not qualify past the first round in the 800-m race at the 2008 Summer Olympics, running a slightly slower (in comparison to his blistering Universiade victory) 1:49.25.
