Pakistan in Olympics.

Byline: M SHARIF OTHO-Khairpur Mir's, Sindh

World eyes Tokyo Olympics 2020 as every nation competes for glory in cut-throat sport competitions. However, Pakistan has begged nothing but disappointment.

Arshad Nadeem was the sliver lining for the country but his sole appearance raises many questions. He's the only one to make it to final.

Yet this isn't new for the nation. Since 1952 Olympics, Pakistan has won mere three gold medals with a total of 10. Our undue craze with cricket led us to this situation.

In almost seven decade, there has been absolute failure to put a good show. I don't understand the purpose of Pakistan Olympic Association and other sport authorities? Funds go in vain and players hardly get any appreciation? Cricket in our country has really marginalised all other sports, which is extremely humiliating. A country of 220m can't win a gold medal and that demands serious retrospection.
