Iran’s Nemati grabs world archery gold
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.
