Pak team fails to participate in 2019 Andorra Int’l Archery C’ship
“Pakistan team was unable to get Spanish visas to proceed in the championship which was scheduled to be held at Andorra from September 25 to 30,” Pakistan Blind Archery Federation (PBAF) Secretary Tanveer Ahmed told APP on Wednesday.
He said we would continue our struggle under the coaching of Pioneer of Blind Archery Muhammad Ejaz who is the son of great Abdul Khaliq.
“He had motivated and trained us to compete at the international level. We are very hopeful to represent Pakistan in future endeavours,” he said.
Tanveer said they had applied for visas to the Spanish Embassy, 15 to 20 days prior to the championship. “The Championship organizers had also requested the Spanish Embassy to grant visas to the Pakistani team so that they could participate in the championship,” he said.
A three-member Pakistani team was scheduled to chip in the extravaganza including Tanveer Ahmed, Waleed Aziz and Muhammad Atif. Ijaz and Shahzad Javed would have accompanied the team as coach and manager.
“We had been going through intensive training at Sports Complex, Rawalpindi for the championship," he said.
