Pakistan’s former Olympic gold medalist boxer Hussain Shah has appealed to Prime Minister Imran Khan and federal IPC minister Fehmida Mirza to release funds for his son Shah Hussain Shah to ensure his participation in Olympic Judo Qualifiers.

In a video message Hussain Shah expressed confidence that his son can win a gold medal for Pakistan, if he gets all the support he needs.

“To qualify for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, he needs to participate in four to five tournaments around the world but the federation doesn’t have funds to sponsor his trips,” Shah added further.
