The Pakistan-based talented shooter has once again hit the headlines by securing a bid to participate in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. He will be representing Pakistan in next year’s Olympics in a rapid-fire pistol event. He had won the first-ever bronze medal for the country in 2017 in a 25-meter center-fire pistol competition. He will be the first to represent the country in the 2020 Olympics.

Akhtar has got an entry on the quota basis and qualified by performing good in the World Shooting Cup in Brazil – the event which served as the qualifier for the entry into the 2020 Olympics.

“Pakistan can win an Olympic medal in the shooting event,” Tribune quoted Pakistan Shooting Association secretary Raziuddin as saying. “Qualifying through Olympic quota is a big win,” he continued.

Earlier, Arslan Ash of Pakistan achieved a historic win in Tekken 7 and was crowned as the champion of Tekken 7 at the world’s biggest and prestigious fighting game tournament Evo 2019.
