Iranian Archer in Paralympic Top ‘25 Moments’

The moment Iranian archer Zahra Nemati celebrated her victory at London 2012, she was chosen to be among the top ‘25 moments’ of the Paralympic Movement from the last quarter of a century.

To mark its 25th anniversary, the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), formed on September 22 1989, asked members of the public to submit their best Paralympic moments of the last 25 years. The moments cover anything from  Paralympic Games, world or regional championships, or even scenes away from the sporting field of play, the paralympic website announced.
Zahra Nemati aimed high at the London 2012 Paralympic Games, becoming the first ever Iranian woman to win Olympic or Paralympic gold.
Nemati picked up the title in the individual re-curve W1/W2 with a Paralympic record, and with it inspired an entire generation of not only Muslim women but people with impairments in her home country.
The victory received extensive media coverage, ensuring the memories of her win would live in the minds of Iranians for generations to come.
In 2014, Nemati travelled to New York to address a United Nations conference, speaking about her journey and gaining equality for people with impairments through sport.
The 28-year-old has become an ambassador for para-sport and agent of social change.
