Pakistan & kickboxing
It is pertinent to mention here that kicking boxing is an internationally recognized sport and the game has been gaining popularity worldwide.
Needless to say, our country is blessed with a number of sports stars. These stars have made the country proud by winning awards and recognition internationally. Our athletes have an exemplary talent that they come to present on various stages. More so, they have inspired and set remarkable standards with little resources that they have.
Be as it may, these athletes emerging with commendable achievements simply show us how much potential our people possess and how far their abilities can take them provided that they have ample support.
A few years back, the Pakistani team of kickboxing bagged a spectacular feat in Bangkok, Thailand when they participated in the World Martial Arts Summit.
In addition to this, in the World Kickboxing and Karate Association (WKA) the Asia Pacific held in 2019, Pakistani kickboxer Saeed K. Afridi pipped India’s Vasu Sharma in less than 90 seconds. This too took place in Bangkok. He made Pakistan proud when he overpowered his Indian opponent in less than 90 seconds.
