“We have not even really started yet. Every game is just the start of our team for the next chapter. In this championship, we did not bring five of our most experienced athletes. In the Asian Para Games in Hangzhou, we will have another combination of players,” Iran’s coach Hadi Rezaei said after the final match.

“Our short-term goal is Hangzhou 2023, our mid-term is Paris 2024, and we hope to take our long-term goal all the way to Los Angeles 2028 Paralympics,” he added.


Team Melli secured gold against host nation in Astana 2023, Saturday July 8th.

Iran had already qualified for Paris 2024 after winning the World Championships for the eighth time, so the Paralympics berth went to the Asian runners-up Kazakhstan.

Paris 2024 Games will take place from August 29 to September 7.
