    Thank you, Tina, for your support and encouragement.

  2. Tina says:

    I think this is great for Pakistan! Unfortunately, the country has been struggling and is constantly painted in a poor light by the media. This brings hope and is a testament that dreams really do come true!

  3. Murad says:

    Are we doing anything for preparing for the next Olympics. I imagine not!

  4. Danni says:

    I think Wrestling (Since Kabbadi is already popular), boxing (physique of the people esp. Pathans) and maybe long distance running.

  5. Farooqui says:

    Focussing on sports as we see again and again in different places can have huge social benefits and a sense of pride in country. For that reason alone I think it is a good investment for Pakistan. We should focus on a few sports and put serious resources in becoming competitive in them over the next 20 years (you cannot do this overnight).

    I think good candidates are:
    Hockey
    Boxing (lighter weights)
    Shooting
    Midde distance running

    Also, I do think that both cricket and squash will make it to the Olympics soon and that will also add to Pakistan’s interest in this.
