Heading into the competition, the teams of Iran and China are expected to dominate the overall medals tally but powerlifters from Kazakhstan, Vietnam and Iraq will push them hard.

Competing here will be the worlds strongest Paralympian, Siamand Rahman from Iran, a title he earned after an impressive lift of 310kg at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games . He will come up against his Jordanian Rio opponent Jamil Elshebli amongst others.

Another hotly contested category will be the mens up to 72kg with Paralympic stars Liu Lei (China) and Iraqi world record holder Rasool Mohsin in the fray.

Meanwhile, Vietnam will expect their first ever Paralympic champion and world record holder Le Van Chong to bring home glory but it will not be easy with the likes of Rio 2016 silver medallist Omar Qarada in the men's up to 49kg line-up. The United Arab Emirates will be hoping Paralympic champion Mohammed Khamis Khalaf can clinch the gold in the men's up to 97kg category but he will be up against world silver medallist Seyedhamed Solhipouravanji from Iran, while Mongolia will look to make a mark through their only athlete in powerlifting , Sodnompiljee Enkhbayar, a bronze medallist from Rio Games, competing in the men's up to 107kg event.
