Pakistan in Rio Games

Lianna Swan and Harris Bandey, along with the other athletes are the London-based swimmers, which are fortunately selected to represent Pakistan in the International Rio Games. According to the Pakistan Swimming Federation (PSF), selection of Lianna Swan and Harris Bandey has totally been done on merit. They were being observed at the 16th World Championship, which was held in Russia. This tournament was also an Olympic qualification round and the two talented players were in the spotlight during the entire tournament.

Lianna Swan and Harris Bandey are currently in London as they are practicing well for the tournament. They would be representing green flag as wild-card entrants. The other two talented competitors named Saad Amin and Anum Banday could not, unfortunately, qualify for the tournament due to scoring lesser point in comparison to Lianna Swan and Harris Bandey. This criterion is enough to speak for the clarity of the merit selection for this tournament.

Lianna Swan and Harris Bandey also represented Pakistan in the recent South Asian Games held in India and Lianna even won a gold medal in the women’s 200m breaststroke. In addition, Mehboob Ali and Najma Parveen are the two shooters, which are being selected to represent Pakistan in the Rio Games. In total, there shall be around 11 athletes, which are going to represent Pakistan at the Rio Games. It is now anticipated that all these athletes would perform really well at the Rio Games and bring international appreciation for the country.
