Iran's Siamand Rahman breaks World Record at World Cup Dubai

Iran’s Paralympic and world champion Siamand Rahman did not disappoint at the IPC Powerlifting World Cup in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, on Friday (19 February), lifting 296kg to set a new world record in the men’s over 107kg.

It is the ninth time the Iranian has broken the world record and means he remains on course to reach his ultimate goal of 300kg. Rahman is expected to attempt the feat at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.

On his 2016 debut, he put in two good lifts of 275kg and 286kg before adding 1kg onto his previous best of 295kg.
