TEHRAN – Iranian para-shooter Sareh Javanmardi is determined to collect another gold medal in the Asian Para Games.
Javanmardi won two gold medals in the mixed 50m pistol SH1 and 10m air pistol SH1 in the 2014 Asian Para Games in Incheon, South Korea.
Two years later, she made history in Rio 2016 Paralympic Games by becoming Iran’s first ever female gold medalist in the shooting category of Paralympics.
She won two gold medals in the prestigious event in the mixed 50m pistol SH1 and 10m air pistol SH1.
“Many people think I accidentally won two gold medals in the Paralympics and I want to prove them it’s not true,” Javanmardi told Paralympic.ir.
“We’ve started participation in the training camps for the 2018 Asian Para Game. I know that I have a difficult task ahead of me since my opponents are preparing to win the medals but I will also do my best to repeat my medals.
“I also want to set new records as well as winning gold medal. I believe that Para-shooting is in a good situation in Iran at the moment,” she concluded.
