Day 151: Sports Day

OYLPA Day 151: Sports Day, originally uploaded by klodhie.
Sports Day is a celebration of sportsmanship, school and national pride. Relay races, aerobics dance drills, karate displays, fun games of tug-of-war and more made Sports Day a wonderful opportunity to encourage boys and girls in Pakistan to work hard through practice and determination, especially in teams.

Two of Pakistan's heroes treated the audience: world squash champion Jansher Khan (considered one of world's greatest squash players of all time after Jahangir Khan, who is considered THE world's greatest squash player in history), and Jawad Ahmed, one of Pakistan's most famous singer's known for his support of rebuilding a better Pakistan and unending support of various charities.

An extremely well-organized event with a great sense of sportsmanship and the chance to meet to Pakistani heroes. Oh and Jawad Ahmad talked to me sooo. He ended by telling me, "Thank you for making it to Pakistan." =)
