Magnificent seven for Iran

16 May 2017
Iran's Pourya Norouziyan competes in the men's 50-m rifle 3 positions event during the Baku 2017.

Iran claimed its seventh gold medal of the Islamic Solidarity Games in Baku when Pourya Norouzyan dominated the men's 50-metre rifle 3 positions final on Tuesday.

The 25-year-old sharp-shooter took the lead in the first round and did not look under threat as fellow Iranian Hossein Bagheri trailed by 3.5 points.

Oman's Hamed Said Alkhatri got bronze a further 0.1 point behind after a strong finish.
