TEHRAN - Iran’s Zahra Nemati will face China’s Wu Chunyan as the greatest rivalry in the women’s individual recurve open in the Asian Para Games.

The Games will be held in Jakarta, Indonesia from October 6 to 13.

Six Paralympic and three world champions headline the archery competition, which will begin on 7 October at the Gelora Bung Karno sports complex, wrote.

Perhaps the greatest rivalry will be in the women’s individual recurve open where Nemati will face Chunyan.

Nemati is arguably the most popular and successful female Paralympian to come from Iran. She competed at both the Rio Olympics and Paralympics and had the honor of carrying the flag for her delegation at Rio 2016 Olympics Opening Ceremony.

Nemati beat Chunyan to the Gold medal at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games and then again took the gold at the Beijing 2017 World Championships in Beijing with Chunyan this time in third.
