Pakistan’s Olympic Representation 2016

Pakistan has finally selected its Olympian representation. A Pakistani delegation is on its way for attending Rio Olympics 2016 in Brazil. This delegation is based on seven athletes along with the 17 officials, three non-resident members and no young players. It is ironic that sports lovers are still thankful that at least Pakistan is having a representation at the Rio Olympics 2016 but it is sad and unfortunate looking at the amount of talent we have in our country that only seven athletes from Pakistan are performing in Rio Olympics 2016.

In 1960, around 44 athletes from Pakistan took part in the Olympics, which represented the country by participating in 33 games with only 10 officials. It is of course very bad for country’s sports image to represent with such a small number of players in 2016. Moreover, as a part of the rule, there should be young players taking part in the Olympics but authorities have sent no young players to the Rio this time.

For young players, Olympics are one of the most essential forums to showcase their skills and talent in the specific sports. Giving this amazing chances to none of the Pakistani players, several questions are being raised for the credibility of Pakistani sports authorities. Sports fans are disappointed in the decisions taken by the authorities. In addition, there is no clear or merit-based system for all the young people, who have the sports talent and want to pursue a professional career in sports.
