The Iranian shooter Sareh Javanmardi has been announced by the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) as One to Watch for the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.
Since winning bronze in P2 (women’s 10m air pistol SH1) in the London 2012, Javanmardi has improved dramatically and now holds three world records.
She won her first world title in 2014 and a year later won two World Cup events, breaking more records along the way.
In an effort to make it easier for the public and media to understand which athletes to look out for at Rio 2016, the IPC between 4-15 January is announcing Ones to Watch in all 22 sports, revealing athletes in two sports each day.
Iranian para-archer Zahra Nemati and powerlifter Siamand Rahman have already been announced as Ones to Watch.
