Two Islamic Republic of Iran discus throwers shattered two records on their way to winning gold at the 2018 Asian Para Games on Friday.

Aghdas Elnaz Darabian set a new Asian record with her 10.71-meter throw in the women’s F51-53 event.

In the men’s F12 event, Pakbaz Saman threw 51.06 m to claim the gold and break the Asia Para Games’ record.

The two athletes’ victories elevated IR Iran’s medal tally to 43 gold medals, 35 silver and 34 bronze medals.
