These enthusiastic and skilled children along with many others did us proud. It’s great to see the youth broadening their horizon and taking interest in sports other than the usual cricket, tennis, football, and polo. Just like many sports, sailing too requires a lot of stamina and physical fitness and to think these very young children managed to win bronze and gold medals is deserving of a standing ovation.
Definitely not the traditional sports you always hear about and with the Cricket World Cup 2019 in full action, this is the refreshing news that needs to be circulated. What these young sportsmen managed to achieve should be brought under the limelight.
Some Honorable Mentions:
Ifrah Wali And Amina Wali who broke stereotypes being Pakistani females that participated in South Asian Winter Games 2011. The skiing sisters won gold and silver medals.
Mohammad Hamza and Humam Ahmed, squash players both won silver medals in US Junior Squash Championship at the Philips Academy, Boston.
