As a Pakistani weightlifter, Nooh Dastagir Butt, bagged a gold medal at the Common Wealth games 2022, Netizens and celebs alike are lauding the sportsman.
The 24-year-old weightlifter from Gujranwala has made the nation proud as an athlete. Not only did he bag a win, but he also won the first gold medal at Common Wealth Games 2022.
Visuals of Nooh’s as he carries the Pakistani flag are making rounds online. In the videos, you can hear the anthem playing in the background as he raises the flag and made the nation proud.
The story behind this win is far more emotional than we think. Nooh had promised his father four years ago that he would bring home a gold medal. Now after four years he finally has.
No wonder everyone is just pouring in praise for the sportsman. From fellow sportsmen to celebs alike.
