after a full game match with his older brother Noshad Alamiyan (53rd).
Noshad Alamian is a strong player who won a bronze medal in the singles competition in Jakarta and Palembang even though he plays almost exclusively with his backhand due to a rare disease that causes nerve problems in his left hand.
