8 Years Old Athlete All Set To Enter Olympics, Dedicates Victory To PM Imran Khan

Pakistan’s youngest ever Taekwondo athlete, Ayesha Ayaz, who also secured a bronze medal in the 27 kg category during the seventh Fujairah Open International Taekwondo Championship in UAE is now eyeing on Olympics. She says she wants to take the big stage and make the country proud.

She expressed that while speaking to an event, that was organized in her honour at Kanju after she came back from UAE. Parents, relatives, district sports officers, elders of the district and other Taekwondo players along with other society members participated in the event.
The 8-year-old girl, hailing from Swat celebrated her victory by cutting a cake and also dedicated her medal to Prime Minister Imran Khan.

She said that she is eyeing on the Olympics and hopes that the government will assist her.

”My next target is the Olympic games for which I am working hard and practising daily under my father’s supervision. I also expect the government will assist me in preparing for the mega event”– she said.

Her father Ayaz Naik, who also is an international Taekwondo athlete himself and owns a training academy in Swat, says that if the government assists, Ayesha has great potential to represent the country on the big stage.

”Winning bronze in the G-1 is not an easy job and her victory means she got tremendous talent and if it is polished on professional lines she will, no doubt, emerge an international star for Pakistan” – he said.

Naik added that G1 event in Taekwondo is equal to cricket/football’s world cup. However, he showed disappointment that despite her big achievement, no government representative has come to encourage her or appreciate her efforts. The elders also said that this little star’s achievements and talent should be appreciated by national leaders.
