Sara Al Senaani became the first ever UAE woman to win a Paralympics medal when she claimed bronze in the T33 classification shot put event in Rio de Janeiro, late on Friday night.
It was an Arab conquest of the podium berths when Asmahan Boudjadar of Algeria and Qatar's Sara Hamdi Masoud won gold and silver. Asmahan hurled the green coloured iron ball to 5.72 metres while Sara Hamdi and Sara touched 5.39m and 5.09m as their best efforts respectively.
The final round saw seven competitors fighting for honours with three throws each at the Maracana main stadium.

The first saw 4.61m on the scoreboard while the second throw was not counted, and in her third, Sara clinched the bronze medal with a distance of 5.09m.
