Incredible: Olympic Qualified Archer achieves Paralympic slot too

Zahra Nemati who secured Rio 2016 Olympic qualifying spot at the Asian Archery Championships in Bangkok some days ago, could also obtain direct slot for Rio 2016 Paralympic Games in a 10-hour tight race against the Chinese rival by a Golden Arrow.

"I was so worn out by the Asian Archery competition, but now I am so excited and really keen to compete in both Rio 2016 Olympic & Paralympic Games" she added. "The Para slot boosts my confidence and enthusiasm".

She is the first Iranian Paralympian champion who achieved both Olympic & Paralympic slots.
