Paralympic gold medalist Sareh Javanmardi has been named as the flag-bearer for Iran at the 2018 Asian Para Games opening ceremony.

In the 2018 World Shooting Para Sport Championships held in Cheongju, South Korea in early May, Javanmardi repeated her success from the last World Championships in 2014 held in Suhl, Germany. There, she secured a slot for the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games – where she won the P2 Paralympic title. Her gold medal in Cheongju brought back old feelings.

Furthermore, Samira Eram, who also booked a ticket to the 2020 Paralympic Games in Cheongju, has been named as Iran’s flag-bearer in the closing ceremony.

It’s for the first time that Iran’s National Paralympic Committee chose two women para athletes for the Asian Para Games ceremonies.

The third Asian Para Games will take place in Indonesia from 6th – 13th October 2018.

A total of 4000 athletes from 43 countries are expected to take part in thirteen Paralympic and four non-Paralympic sports. The Games will take place in the same venues as the 2018 Asian Games.
