Iran’s women karate team claims Asian title

The 2018 17th AKF Cadet, Junior and U-21 Championships is underway in Okinawa, Japan from May 10 to May 13.

The Iranian U-21 women team showed an astonishing performance to claim the title of tournament on Saturday.

Fatemeh Khonakdar and Negin Altooni took the two gold medals for the Iranian U-21 squad, while Mobina Heidari won a silver and Haditha Jamali bagged a bronze medal.

Meanwhile, the Iranian U-21 men’s karate team did not do well and their medal tally of two silver and two bronze did not earn the team a place in the tournament.

Yesterday, as part of the same competitions, the Iranian cadet team won the Asian title, while the Iranian girls came second.



Mount Damavand is the highest peak in Iran and the highest volcano in Asia.
