Islamic Solidarity Games: Iran’s 4x100m Disability Relay Team Takes Gold
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran claimed a gold medal in the men's 4x100m disability relay (T11/T12/T13) of the Islamic Solidarity Games on Friday.
In the competition held at the Baku Olympic Stadium, Iran sprinted to gold in the men's 4x100m disability relay (T11/T12/T13) after Azerbaijan wrecked its chances with a botched handover.
The Iranian quartet of Arash Khosravi, Amir Khosravani, Vahid Alinajimi and Hossein Saeidi won in 45.24secs ahead of Turkey in the three-team final, while bronze was not awarded after the Azeris failed to finish.
More than 3,000 athletes from 54 countries of the Islamic Solidarity Sports Federation are competing in 21 sports at the Games.
The Baku 2017 Islamic Solidarity Games started May 8 and will last until May 22 in Azerbaijan’s capital.
