Bos­nia seek re­venge on Iran at World Su­per 6: Sadegh Bigdeli

Tehran Times - - SPORTS -

TEHRAN — Iran na­tional sit­ting vol­ley­ball player Sadegh Bigdeli says that Bos­nia & Herze­gov­ina sit­ting vol­ley­ball team will come to Tabriz for tak­ing re­venge on Iran in the 2018 World Su­per 6.

The 2018 World Su­per 6 will be held in Tabriz, Iran from April 19 to 24.

The com­pe­ti­tion will bring Iran, Bos­nia & Herze­gov­ina, Rus­sia, Ukraine, Ger­many and the U.S. to­gether.

“We are de­ter­mined to win the ti­tle in our home but we have a dif­fi­cult task ahead since Bos­nia are seek­ing re­venge on Iran. Team Melli de­feated Bos­nia in the 2016 Par­a­lympic Games twice and we know that they want to beat us,” Bigdeli said in an in­ter­view with Par­a­

“The 2018 World Su­per 6 is a prepara­tory com­pe­ti­tion for the 2018 Sit­ting Vol­ley­ball World Cham­pi­onships. We are pre­par­ing for the pres­ti­gious com­pe­ti­tions which will be held in the Nether­lands in July,” the wing spiker added.

“Rus­sia also are a fa­vorite to win the ti­tle. They’ve pro­gressed in the re­cent years and de­feated Bos­nia in the Euro­pean cham­pi­onship fi­nal. I think the 2018 World Su­per 6 will be a real test for the world cham­pi­onships,” Bigdeli con­cluded.
