Magnificent seven for Iran

Baku, May 16, AZERTAC

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.
