Narina Khayat defeated Uzbekistan’s Rabboniya Ruslanova in straight rounds for the gold medal of the girls’ -164cm class on Thursday.
Pinar Lotfizadeh, however, had to settle for a silver in the girls’ -168cm event after a 2-0 defeat against Rushanakhon Ravshanova – also from Uzbekistan.
In the boys’ competitions, Pouya Kiaheyrati came short against Jordanian Osama al-Manaseer in the -168cm final and took the silver, while Armin Masoumi finished his boys’ -172cm campaign with a consolation bronze.
Seyyed Mohammad Abdollahi (boys -152cm) and Fatemeh Zahra Baqeri (girls -148cm) were the Iranian gold medalists on the first day of the cadet event.
The results came after the Iranian 10-girl squad had won the Asian junior title earlier in the Lebanese capital, courtesy of a remarkable six golds, two silvers, and a bronze.
