Iran honored the Paralympians of the last 30 years!

The achievements of Iran’s Paralympic athletes have been honoured at a special event in the city of Masshad. 145 medallists from Paralympic Games dating back to Seoul 1988 were recognised at a Praise Ceremony on 3 September organised by Iran’s National Paralympic Committee (NPC) and attended by a number of government officials.

The world’s strongest Paralympian – powerlifting champion Siamand Rahman – was unable to attend the event due to his preparation for this month’s World Para Powerlifting Championships in Mexico City. The celebration was also tinged with sadness, as cyclist Bahman Golbarnejad received a special recognition. The 48-year-old was killed in an accident while racing at Rio 2016, and his family attended the ceremony.
