Results of the 2018 Asian Championships

 

http://accasia.org/event/24th-asian-mountain-bike-championships

 

for the first time Iran won two medals in Olympic events here, Silver in men's elite cross-country and bronze in women's elite cross-country. I thought this is a surprising result then I checked the World Ranking and surprisngly Iran is Rank 1 in Asia in both men's and women's elite !! so winning bronze and silver is not a surprise but how come ?! :mumble: cross-country is quite new in Iran . is Asia this weak in CC ?

 

btw, Faranak Partoazar's bronze medal in Women's CC is the first ever medal won by Iranian girls in an Asian Cycling Senior Championship. I consider this a big achievement because women's cycling is new in Iran and beside that Iranian girls are in disadvantage with those crazy dress codes. I believe winning medals in road and track events are much harder (almost impossible) with them.

Red Bull TV commentator is once again claiming that there are 5 (!) people on the mountain bike WC podium...

 

For crying out loud, just because 4th and 5th stand by the podium does not mean that they are on the podium! :facepalm::mirror:
