Iran delegation come third at Baku 2017
Iran came third in the fourth Islamic Solidarity Games, winning 39 gold, 26 silver and 33 bronze medals and 98 in total in the 11-day long battle.

Iran had a strong finish to the Games, lifting eight of the last 11 golds, six of those coming in wushu.

They were simply unstoppable in the wushu sanda events, underlining their supremacy by winning all of their bouts and storming to six of seven gold medals available.

Iran also won both gold medals in the table tennis, the final gold medals of the games to be decided.

Azerbaijan took the lead in medal standings at the Games with 75 gold, 50 silver and 37 bronze medals.

Turkey ranked second with 71 gold medals, 67 silver and 57 bronze medals.

Hosts Azerbaijan, like Saudi Arabia (2005) and Indonesia (2013) before them, were worthy champions, but Turkey can look forward with genuine optimism.

The next Solidarity Games will be held in Istanbul in 2021.
