Qatar yesterday won its first medal at the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio De Janeiro after national Abdelrahman Abdelqader took silver in the shot put F34 final.
Twenty eight year old Abdelqader achieved 11.15m, his seasonal best, on his sixth attempt, beating out Colombia’s Valencia Mauricio but losing to Morocco’s Nouri Azzeddine, reported Doha News.
The athlete is also set to compete in the javelin throw F34 final on Thursday.
The Paralympics takes place every four years for athletes with physical disabilities including limited mobility and blindness. Athletes in the F34 category usually have mobility issues in their lower limbs and use wheelchairs for daily activities.
This year, it has three athletes competing in the games. These include 30 year old Sara Masoud, who will compete in the women’s shot put F33 final on Friday, and 23 year old Mohammed Al-Kubaisi, who will compete in the men’s 100m T34 on Tuesday. (Source)
