TAGHI ASKARI diving champion aged 100

Earlier this week Askari told World Aquatics that he had given away the sport as a forty-one-year-old but was returning to dive in Doha due to his love of the sport. “When I was competing at a national level the last championships I did was when I was 41 years old,” said Askari. “I achieved a gold medal at the national level, and after that, I said goodbye to the sport, but at least with a gold medal.”
