I’ll do my best to win gold in Incheon, archer Zahra Nemati says

TEHRAN, Nov. 12 (MNA) – Iran’s Paralympic archery gold medallist Zahra Nemati said that she is going to win the gold medal of the Incheon 2014 Asian Para Games.
Nemati is the first Iranian woman, who has won a gold medal at Olympic or Paralympic level. Recurve archer won the gold medal in women’s individual W1/W2 class event at 2012 London Paralympics.

She won a gold medal on Thursday in the 2013 World Archery Para-Championships held in Bangkok, Thailand. She took the title over China’s Paralympic team silver medallist Yanhong Xiao.

“I won the gold medal in Thailand but I didn’t perform well enough because I had not trained well. I will do my best to win a gold medal in Asian Para Games,” Nemati said.

“Prediction is very difficult because some situations including weather condition is important in the match but I want to win a gold medal,” she added.

Zahra Nemati has won the 2013 Sport Accord’s Spirit of Sport Individual Award in May.
