Basharmal Sultani's boxing match in Athens:
August 15 was not a lucky day for Afghan athletes in Athens

Basharmal Sultani (in the red cloths) lost the match in fourth round. This losing shocked Afghan athletes in and outside the country. He is known to be one of the best boxing athletes in Afghanistan. His success in several previous Asian competitions supported him to be selected for the competitions in Athens.

Master Arian Khaibar, head of Afghan Tackwando Jidokwan Association adds his opinion:

“Sultani was a successfull athlete for and played well. I believe that each competition is an opportunity and this time the opportunity didn’t work for him." He adds “Basharmal Sultani’s loosing for Hikal from Egypt does not discourage Afghan athlete’s moral.”
