At the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, England, three Pakistani female swimmers—Jahanara Nabi, Bisma Khan, and Mishael Ayub—are representing and doing Pakistan proud.
Women make up three of the four Pakistanis competing in the swimming events at the Commonwealth Games, which gives Pakistan great pride.
Jahanara Nabi broke her own national record in the competition’s freestyle division by clocking a time of 1:01.51 in the women’s 100m freestyle heats. Her previous time was 1:02.05.
Jahanara Nabi, 18, is competing in her maiden Commonwealth Games and has broken numerous national marks in Pakistan.
The 20-year-old Bisma Khan competed in the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics and earned the silver medal at the 2019 South Asian Games in Nepal.
Mishael Ayub, 20, took part in the 2018 Asian Games as well.
The entire country is proud of these three women because they have accomplished so much despite being young and coming from a place with inadequate training facilities for sports, particularly female athletes.
