Iranian female javelin thrower Hashemieh Motaghian is dreaming of winning medal in the 2018 Asian Para Games.

Motaghian, who represented Iran at the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio, claimed a silver medal at 2017 World Para Athletics Championships in London.

She finished in second place in Women's Javelin Throw F56 Final with 20.66m. 

Now, Motaghian is preparing for winning a medal in Jakarta.

“I will participate in both javelin and discus throw events in the Asian Para Games. After the World Para Athletics Championships, I am training hard because I want to win a gold medal in the Games,” Motaghian told Paralympic.ir.

“I think I will have a tough task in javelin throw in the Asian Para Games but I want to break record,” she added. 

The 2018 Asian Para Games, also known as the 3rd Asian Para Games, parallels the 2018 Asian Games, as a multi-sport event for Asian athletes with disability.

This event will be held in Jakarta, Indonesia from October 6 to 13. 

Iran came fourth in the first and second editions held in Guangzhou, China and  Incheon, South Korea respectively.
