Saturday, October 13, 2018 - 09:27

A student of Islamic Azad University, Urmia branch, has broken a new recorded in the third Asian Para Games and won gold medal at over 107kg category.

According to an ISCA report, Siamand Rahman lifted 273kg in his first move and 293kg in the second attempt and then 295kg in the last move, thus breaking the Paralympic Games' record.

“I am so happy that it’s my third gold medal in the Para Asian Games and I broke for the second time the Para Asian Games record [after Incheon 2014],” he said.

“I wanted to change and break the world record but my coach noticed me and said to me it’s not necessary in the competition because this competition is in Asia so it’s not in the world ranking,” he explained.

“The target and my plan is for Tokyo 2020 and I have a special planning and a schedule for breaking the historic record in Tokyo,” Rahman added.

The third Asian Para Games are underway in Jakarta, Indonesia, from October 8-16, with 2,880 athletes from 41 countries, competing against each other in 13 disciplines.

A total of 209 Iranian para-athletes have taken part in the games. Iran has pocketed 80 gold medals so far.
