Mahoor Shahzad achieved a great milestone back in 2019 when she became the first-ever Pakistani female badminton champion. She has once again become the national champion of Pakistan for the fifth time! The 24-year-old shared her latest achievement on Twitter.
This huge milestone is not just for herself but for Pakistan as well. Shahzad secured the 149th spot out of the top 150 becoming the first-ever Pakistani woman to reach such a high ranking around the globe in 2019.
Aiming to represent Pakistan in the Olympics 2020, she made her country proud yet again. She secured the 138th position amongst the world’s top 140 badminton players.
Breaking all the shackles, she is the first Pakistani female played to be inducted into the top female badminton players globally. Statistics delineate that Shahzad has achieved over 44 eminent wins in her overall career.
Earlier, following her globally recognized victory, Shahzad paid her gratitude to Pakistanis. She mentioned that it would never have been possible for her to come this far in her journey without their support.
Here is the tweet mentioning her glorious achievement!
Hats off to her!
It must be noted that this is not the first time the badminton player has made Pakistan proud with her achievements. Shahzad came up with flying colors for women’s singles at the 2017 Pakistan International tournament. Following, she also participated in the 2014 Asian Games, and the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
It is an absolute pleasure to see Pakistani women excelling in all areas, be it academics, visual arts, STEM, or sports. Pakistani women have proven to possess the intelligence and capability to compete at an international level winning top positions, in groups, and as individuals.
Nevertheless, Shahzad aspires to inspire females from all around Pakistan that they should strive to live their dreams. Like her, women must pursue their careers in sports.
This young achiever has a long way to go and watching her goals and determination, Shahzad will not be slowing down conquering several great matches. We hope she achieves every aim she sets her mind to. And so, we congratulate her and wish her all the best for a very bright future. Bravo!
