Pakistan’s Najma Parveen will run in heat 2 of women’s 200m in Tokyo Olympics
Pakistan’s Najma Parveen has entered the Tokyo Olympics as the best female sprinter but bowed out disappointingly.
The 31-year-old ran in heat 2 of women’s 200m and achieved 7th among 7. Najma Parveen who triumphed the National Record of women’s 200m with 23.69, was 2.88 seconds behind the athlete who finished 6th.
Note that Pakistan top athlete’s Olympic journey was almost at its end when her entry was withdrawn by the Athletics Federation of Pakistan (AFP), without her knowledge.
However, the Pakistan Olympic Federation managed to re-enter her in the Tokyo Olympics 2020.
Moreover, the Pakistan Olympic Association and Athletics Federation of Pakistan are rivals with each other due to many other issues.
The POA had suspended AFP’s membership after its athletes tested positive for COVID in the last South Asian Games in 2019.
