Iran’s Para-archer Zahra Nemati among Ones to Watch
Iranian Para-archer Zahra Nemati has been named among Ones to Watch athletes.
The Iranian Para-archer followed up her historic gold at London 2012 by retaining her individual recurve open title at Rio 2016. She also competed at the Rio 2016 Olympics.
The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) started the process of announcing Ones to Watch athletes for all 22 Paralympic summer sports for 2017, beginning with archery and wheelchair rugby.
Selected in partnership with World Archery and the International Wheelchair Rugby Federation (IWRF), the Ones to Watch athletes are individuals who have the potential to make the headlines in archery and wheelchair rugby during the next Paralympic cycle ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.
Eight archers and 10 wheelchair rugby players have been named as players to look out for in 2017.
