LAHORE (Web Desk) – Oscar winner Sharmeen Obaid has released her second short documentary from her Dream Big Pakistan series.
The 19-year-old swimmer Lianna Swan is one of the seven representatives of Pakistan in the Rio Olympics 2016, and currently holds eleven national records. She is one of the three women representing Pakistan who will be participating in the Olympics this year, Dawn News reported.
“It’s not necessarily ‘Oh, I’m doing it to get to the Olympics myself.’ I’m also doing it for the girls in Pakistan,” says Lianna.
“Because if they see me doing it, and they’ve seen me swim and they’ve seen me train and they’ve seen me being able to go to the Olympics, then they know, there’s no reason they can’t go to the Olympics as well,” she adds.
SOC Films stated, “Having competed in the Asian Games, the FINA World Cup (Dubai 2011), FINA World Aquatics Championships (Barcelona 2013) and the FINA World Championships August 2015, held in Kazan-Russia, Lianna has been representing Pakistan internationally since 2010. Most recently, she won the Gold Medal at the South Asian Games held in India in February 2016.”
