Iasah plans to retire in style with a Tokyo Paralympics medal

So close: Iasah just missed out on a podium finish at the Rio Paralympics.

KUALA LUMPUR: National para 400m runner Siti Noor Iasah Mohd Ariffin plans to retire but not after winning a medal in the Paralympics. She has won medals in every major competition except for the Paralympics.

She has put herself in position to qualify for her second Paralympics in Tokyo next year by virtue of being the 14th ranked runner in the 400m T20 (intellectual impairment). Only the top 16 after the end of qualification in June next year will make the cut.
