In a race that was mostly against the clock with winds of -0.8, Iraq’s Abbas Al-Darraji competed in men’s T38 100m at 2016 IPC Athletics Asia-Oceania Championships in Dubai. He was the only competitor in his event, where he set at time of 12.23. Abbas Al-Darraji’s time was good enough to meet the 2016 Paralympic B-Qualifying time of 13 seconds. It was also one of the best times put up this year so far.
24-year-old Al-Darraji still has two more events left on his Dubai program, including the 200 meters and 400 meters. Last year at an IPC Grand Prix in Dubai, he won a silver in the men’s T37/38 400 meter race. He set an A-Paralympic qualifying time last year in the 400 meters in Dubai. So far, he lacks an A or B qualifying time in the 200 meters.
Darraji’s best event is arguably the 800 meters, winning silver in the men’s T37/38 800 meter race at an IPC Grand Prix in Dubai last year. The T38 competitor had a time of 2:07.14, good enough to set a new Asian record. The men’s T38 event is not on the 2016 Paralympic program.
