Hamzeh Mohammadi claimed a bronze medal at the IPC Powerlifting World Cup on Tuesday.
The Iranian powerlifter seized the bronze with 193kg in the men’s up to 65kg weight category.
Egypt’s Shaaban Ibrahim sealed victory with 194kg. Algeria’s Hocine Bettir equalled Ibrahim’s lift but settled for second place because of his heavier bodyweight.
