Iran's Siamand Rahman marked his first International Paralympic Committee (IPC) Powerlifting World Cup appearance of the year by breaking the men’s over 107 kilogram world record in Dubai.

The Paralympic champion finished at the top of the 2015 world rankings for the division and showed why he will again be the man to beat at Rio 2016 with a fine display on the final day of the event.

After successfully lifting 275kg and 286kg, the world champion had already assured himself of the gold medal and set his sights on surpassing his existing record of 295kg.

He added a further kilogram onto that mark and is expected to attempt a lift of 300kg at the Paralympic Games in September.

Egypt’s Amr Mosaad finished as the runner-up in the event, but was some way behind Rahman’s total with 226kg.

The podium was completed by Jordan’s Jamil Elshebli, after he finished on 220kg.

Iran’s hopes of double gold were denied by Egypt’s Mohamed Elsayed in a fiercely competitive up to 107kg event.

Elsayed produced an African record lift of 227kg to end one kilogram ahead of Iran’s World Championship silver medallist Ali Sadeghzadehsalmani.

A successful effort of 202kg was enough for Kyrgyzstan’s Zhrygalbek Orosbaev to claim the bronze medal.

Egypt finished top of the overall medals table with 10 titles after Nadia Ali won the women's over 86kg competition.

She achieved 141kg to finish clear of Poland’s Marzena Zieba, who lifted a European record total of 130kg to win the silver medal.

Iraq’s Huda Ali claimed the bronze medal with 127kg.

Powerlifters will have a final chance to improve their world rankings at the next World Cup, due to take place from February 24 to 28 in Kuala Lumpur.
