Paralympic Praises Iran Wheelchair Basketball Team's Performance
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran made a historic push at the World Wheelchair Basketball Championship in Hamburg, Germany, Paralympic.org reported.
Not many would have predicted the Iranian men to come as far as they did. The 2017 Asia-Oceania Championship silver medalist went undefeated in group play that included host Germany, Canada and Morocco; and reached the bronze medal game against zonal rivals Australia.
Although they lost, Iran’s finish was the highest finish at a Worlds from an Asian men’s team.
Omid Hadiazhar and Morteza Ebrahimi were two towering terrors who made that run possible.
