PARALYMPIC GOLD FOR JORDAN
Jordan has picked up its first Paralympic gold medal for 21 years after Powerlifter Omar Qarada secured a brilliant win in his 49kg category at Tokyo 2020.
The 40-year-old, who won silver at the 2016 Rio De Janeiro and the 2008 Sydney Games, finally got his gold with a tremendous lift of 174kg, more than three-and-a-half times his bodyweight.
Reigning gold medallist and world record holder, Van Con Le, of Vietnam, was second with Parvin Mammadov, of Azerbaijan, picking up the bronze in third.
Jordan last won a Paralympic gold at the 2000 Sydney Olympics through Table Tennis star Maha Barghouti.
