Pride of Pakistan – Sports Women Appointed Sports Ambassadors
Pakistan’s sprinter Nasim Hamid became the fastest woman of South Asia as she raced past the finish line. She covered the 100 meter distance in just 11.81 seconds beating the hot favorites on the way. Born in Karachi, the 22 year old sprinter comes from a humble background. She resides in Orangi Town; a slum area of the mega city Karachi. Nasim’s success shows that a person’s determination can take him/her to the top. And that nothing is unattainable if you believe in yourself and make an effort. Nasim is the first female athlete from Pakistan to win the gold in SAF Games’ 26 year old history.
The other lady to bag the gold was Sara Nasir. She got the top medal for karate. She is also the first lady to win gold for Pakistan in this category.
Both the gold medalists were awarded Rs 10 Million by the President in a simple ceremony in Islamabad. Appointing them as “sports’ ambassador” the President asked the concerned authorities to formulate a policy for better coaching and training of outstanding athletes abroad. The President showered lavish praise on the two achievers who brought good name to a country known more for terrorism, poverty and corruption. The ladies in return were grateful for the love and support the people of Pakistan showed.
