At the Peace and Friendship Games, which were held in Iran on Monday, a strong Pakistani judo team won the gold medal by defeating Iran A.

After a string of victories in the group matches, where the Pakistani team had previously defeated Iran B and Afghanistan, this significant victory in the competition followed.

The team consisted of Sher Khan Kakar (-60 kg), Qudratullah (-73 kg), Junaid Khan (-81 kg), and Haseeb Mustafa (-90 kg), according to the Pakistan Judo Federation.

The four-person Pakistani team defeated a five-person Iranian team 3-2 in the tournament’s championship match to win the prestigious medal.

One of the important members of the Pakistani team was the young athlete Haseeb Mustafa, who also competed in the traditional Judo sport of Kure.

Haseeb Mustafa’s historic victory in the championship match improved not only his own gold medal chances but also that of his nation as a whole.

Haseeb Mustafa put on an exceptional performance, but Pakistan still came in second and had to settle for a silver medal.

Syed Muhammad’s victory in yesterday’s final match earned him a gold medal in the men’s individual 60kg division, giving Pakistan yet another reason to rejoice.
