IWGA Athlete of the Year 2017 Award

Sport Climbing, Reza Alipourshenazandifar (IRI)

Reza Alipourshenazandifar did not only win The World Games title in Speed Climbing this summer, he also holds the World Record in this discipline. The 23-year-old faced his final race at the Games alone – his competitor had a false start – but was able to keep himself together and finish with the fastest time, 5.57. His medal was the first ever gold medal for Iran at The World Games.
