No Rio Olympics 2016 for Pakistan

Unfortunately so far, it is the red signal for Pakistan at the International Rio Olympics. There is a week left in this big sports event and there are no Pakistani players, which have received NOCs yet. Sportsmen from all over the world are reaching Brazil for these games but Pakistani players are still waiting for their no objection certificates. This shows the loopholes in the system that there is such mismanagement at the initial stage of Rio 2016 in Pakistan.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) Chairman and Pakistan’s cricket legend, Imran Khan showed his remorse over the fact that no Pakistani player has reached Rio yet. It is very shameful because Rio games are an international affair where players from all over the world, represent the skills and talent of their country when it comes to athletics. Visa issues have been too severe for the athletes of Pakistan. Imran Khan regrets the fact that with a population of 200 million, there is nobody to represent Pakistan at the Rio Olympics.

Pakistan Sports Board (PSB) is declaring that they are constantly contacting the ministry for certificates and it is their sheer effort to get them for the players as soon as possible. With a week left in the beginning of the Rio games, it is ironic that Pakistani players will get their certificates on time! According to unofficial announcements, there are around 7 athletes and 10 officials, which will be travelling to Brazil for the Rio Games 2016.
