“I want the youth of Pakistan to watch the race and learn the most important lesson that sports taught me: you only lose when you give up,” penned the PM.

The athlete in the video is Sifan Hassan of the Netherlands, who at the start of the final lap of a qualifying round of the 1,500-meter race got clipped and fell down.

However, the 28-year-old runner quickly got up and ran at full speed, eventually passing every runner, including four in the last 50 meters, to win the heat in 4 minutes 5.1 seconds.
