It has been a truly remarkable return for the special athletes from Pakistan, making the country proud at the global stage.

The question arises, why aren’t the regular athletes from Pakistan able to perform well at the leading international events like Olympics?

  • “The question arises, why aren’t the normal athletes from Pakistan able to perform well at the leading international events like Olympics?”

    This statement needs to be changed to ‘Why aren’t ‘regular’ athletes from Pakistan…’ as writing ‘normal athletes’ you’re effectively saying the athletes mentioned in the article are abnormal which derogatory and has a negative connotation.
