Nur-Sultan 2019 | Day 7 Highlights | WPPO Championships

Iranian legend Siamand Rahman might not have broken the world record in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan, but he still stole the show by winning his third World Para Powerlifting Championships title on Friday.

Reassuring his status as the strongest ever Paralympian, Rahman comfortably lifted 265kg in his second attempt to take gold in the men’s over 107kg.

Earlier in the women’s over 86kg, Paralympic gold medallists Loveline Obiji and Randa Mahmoud surprisingly lost to Deng Xuemei.
