The International Paralympic Committee sends its condolences to the family of Razieh Shirmohammadi and the Iranian Paralympic Committee.

The Para archer died on Tuesday at the age of 42 due to a heart attack.

Shirmohammadi claimed a bronze medal in the women’s team recurve open at the London 2012 Paralympic Games – competing alongside Zahra Javanmard and Zahra Nemati.

The Para archer had recently won a quota spot for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games competing at the World Championships in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands.

Born in Mashhad, Iran, Shirmohammadi also represented her country at the Rio 2016 Paralympics.

Among other important results, she won two medals in Asian Para Games – a gold at Guangzhou 2010 and a silver at Indonesia 2018 – and two World Championships medals – a gold at Beijing 2017 and a bronze at Torino 2011.
