Afghanistan’s female boxers are defying the odds in their Olympic quest:
“We have just a few weights, no modern equipment, no physicians, no sports nutrition,” coach Mohammed Sabir Sharifi said recently from a dusty training room in Kabul’s Ghazi Stadium, the official training ground for the Afghanistan Women’s Boxing Team.
“Security is still not good in Kabul,” he added. “If the Taliban got hold of these girls, they would shoot them on the spot.”
In fact, less than 10 years ago, the Taliban held public executions on the very same soccer pitch just outside the training room.
A really cool thing.
I knew they would take it hard, but this hard? It’s like they lost the game, the series and hockey was outlawed in Canada altogether.
