Female Afghan athletes outshone their male teammates, winning 11 of the 19 medals. This is the first time female athletes have outperformed male ones.

“We spotted our deficiencies and learned to improve in the future to get better medals,” a female athlete told TOLOnews.

Afghan Taekwondo officials were happy with the team’s performance.

“Our heroes successfully proved themselves at the competition,” Abdul Saboor Omari, technical deputy of the Afghanistan Taekwondo Federation, told TOLOnews.

A crowd of Kabul residents flocked to the airport to welcome the athletes.

Afghanistan, Armenia, Tunisia, Croatia, Iraq, Serbia and three Iranian teams participated in the tournament. Afghanistan had 37 athletes in the competition.

Hosts Iran came in first, with Armenia trailing Afghanistan at third.
