Iranian swimmer grabs bronze medal in Asian Para Games

Rasht, Dec 13, IRNA – Iranian swimmer Ali Asghar Pour Ramezan grabbed a bronze medal in the Third Asian Youth Para Games which is underway in Dubai, the UAE.

Pour Ramezan in 100-meter breaststroke style ranked third in Asia, head of Gilan diving and water polo committee Parviz Golriz told Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) on Wednesday.

The 2017 Asian Youth Para Games will be underway until December 14.

Iranian squad with 114 athletes participated in 7 fields.

Breaststroke is a swimming style in which the swimmer is on their chest and the torso does not rotate. It is the most popular recreational style due to the swimmer's head being out of the water a large portion of the time, and that it can be swum comfortably at slow speeds.
