  • Great for Pakistan! Talent should be encouraged and nurtured for all. Great to see the young breaking barriers!

  • Masha Allah laquetillebillah beautiful skating! Nay Allah (SWA), grant you ease and success as well as provide armor from those who are not supportive or ignorant. Ameen. A’udoo billehi minna shaytan A’Raheejem.

  • VERY NICE PERFORMANCE BY MALLAK, ITS THE.FRUIT OF.HARD.WORK, AND IS EXPECTED TO GET A LEADING POSITION IN THE OLYMPIC INSHA ALLAH.

  • Brilliant. She looked more advanced than the category she was placed in. All power to her. Hope she makes it at the top levels. What was that horrid music she was skaring to?

  • Very graceful indeed, and possesses all the figure skating attributes of winning a championship. Yet, does the Pakistan populace even know about this, or are they blinded to other Pakistani heroes due to the hype created by our shameful performance in Cricket Down Under?
    Excellent Mallak! Keep aspiring for exceptional ideals in this beautiful sport where creativity and an artistic mind play a vital role.
    Stay blessed.
