The people in Pakistan are, without a doubt, filled with great talent. May it be, paintings on trucks, to comedic representations, Pakistanis have it all. In addition, they are great athletes as well. Asif Magsi a young boy from Thatta is making rounds in the news for all the right reasons. According to recent resources, Asif Magsi is now recruited by the Pakistan Army, and we can’t be more proud!
Recently, when the 21-year-old Magsi shared a video of him jumping over 11 bikes; he thought it was a simple cool video. However, he was still unsure of what was awaiting him in the future.
“It was my personal best and I received an overwhelming response online but that’s about it,” Magsi said. The video of his exclusive long jump went viral in minutes and people started to applaud him for his gifted talent. Having 1.2 million followers on TikTok, Magsi thought, this was the best he could do.
However, his magical athletic jump brought quite a change in his fate. Something even he was unaware of. Even if the overwhelming views and response weren’t enough. Magsi is getting quite some hefty offers.
In fact, within just two days, he is now given the label of “The Flying Man” and “Hero Pakistani.”

Wow! It surely is inspiring to see how one can shoot for the stars with hard work and determination. And Magsi is already shooting for the stars with his incredible performance. We wonder how amazing this young man will be setting an example for so many people.
However, he isn’t the first Pakistani to have made us proud this year. Another athlete and young football player Abiha Haider also made it to the 30 most powerful women this year.
Above all, we wish this brilliant high-achiever the best of luck and a lot of success and prosperity in the future. We hope that he is capable of fulfilling his dream and making all Pakistanis proud of him.
