Iran won the Asian Men’s Volleyball Championship in Dubai today, Sunday October 6, by beating South Korea 3-0. That was Iran's seventh consecutive victory in this year's championship.

Iran had reached the final by toppling powerhouse Japan on Saturday in another 3-0 victory.

The Iranian team prevailed over Kuwait, Kazakhstan, Iraq, Japan, Lebanon and South Korea (twice) in order to clinch the gold medal. China nabbed the bronze medal by defeating Japan after the two teams failed to advance to the final.

This is the second time Iran has won this championship and the first time it has done so outside of Iran.
