Women’s Team Third in Sepaktakraw World Cup

Iran women team stood on third place in the International Sepaktakraw Federation (ISTAF) World Cup Sepaktakraw Championship at the GMC Balayogi Indoor Stadium in Gachibowli, a suburb in Hyderabad, India.
The Iranian team, which had defeated the host country 2-0 in the previous game, lost to Thailand to finish third -- the highest position Iran has reached in the history of the games so far, Tasnim News Agency reported.
“This is a great honor for us,” Mahnaz Ahmadnia, head coach of the Iran team, said.
Iran beat Sri Lanka in its first group match 21-4 but lost to powerhouse Malaysia in a close game. However, Iran qualified for the next round as second team.
“Being among the top four teams of the world is a big achievement for Iran’s sepaktakraw”, Ahmadnia added.
Sepaktakraw is a sport which originated from Southeast Asia. It is played similarly to volleyball but players use their feet, knee, chest and head to carry a rattan ball over the net.
It is a spectator sport that contains elements of volleyball, football, martial arts and gymnastics.
