Iran’s Ne­mati grabs world archery gold

Iran Daily - - Sports -

the Chi­nese cap­i­tal city of Bei­jing to grab the gold.

The Turk­ish Archer set­tled for the sil­ver and China’s Wu Chun­yan took the bronze.

“I’m pretty sat­is­fied with my per­for­mance at the com­pe­ti­tions and set some good records in both pre­lim­i­nary rounds and knock­out stages which even bet­tered my tal­lies at the Rio Par­a­lympics,” Ne­mati said upon her tri­umph in Bei­jing.

There was even more glory for the 32-year-old Ira­nian later in the day as the pair of Ne­mati and Pouria Jalalipour man­aged to fin­ish third in the mixed team’s re­curve open and pock­eted the bronze medal. Ital­ian con­tes­tants Elis­a­betta Mi­jno and Ste­fano Trav­isan col­lected the gold medal fol­lowed by Thais Silva Car­valho and Fran­cisco Cordeiro from Brazil who scooped the sil­ver.
