Iran receives 1st 2020 Paralympics quota

Tehran, May 6, IRNA – Iranian female shooter Sareh Javanmardi with a gold medal snatched the first 2020 Summer Paralympics quota slated to be held in Tokyo, Japan.

In the 2018 World Shooting Para Sport Championships which is underway in South Korea, Javanmardi ranked first in 10-meter air pistol.

The 2020 Summer Paralympics are an upcoming major international multi-sport event for athletes with disabilities governed by the International Paralympic Committee.

Shooting is the ultimate test of accuracy and control and in shooting Para sport events, athletes with physical impairments compete in both rifle and pistol events.

In this precision sport, athletes use focus and controlled breathing to reduce their heart rates and improve stability and high performance.

World Shooting Para Sport is also working to develop new discipline or events in the sport for inclusion in the sport programme, including Para Clay Target Shooting and Visually Impaired (VI) Shooting.
