A student of Islamic Azad University, Urmia branch, Siamand Rahman, has won the respective best male award at 2017 Paralympic Sport Awards held in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

According to an ISCA report, coinciding with the opening day of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) General Assembly, the awards recognized achievements from the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.

Siamand Rahman, considered the world’s strongest power-lifter, broke his own world record at Rio 2016 by lifting 310 kilograms. It secured him his second consecutive Paralympic title.

"In my opinion, the outstanding message of such a selection to the world is to prove that impairment is not a limitation," Rahman said.

"A Paralympian can achieve sport performances and records that normal people cannot even imagine. Therefore, the Paralympians are changing people’s perception of the world through their achievements and this is the most important point that I always think about," he also added.
