After the training camp, I’ll be back to Tehran to participate in the second round of the competitions. I’m raring for the Asian Games to get started and I’m looking forward to complete my honors by earning medal in this tournament. I finished fifth in 100m in 2014 Incheon Asian Games and have all Asian medals, but I’m ready to give them all and take Asian Games medal. ” Ghasemi declared.
