After an eight-year-old Kashmiri girl Tajamul Islam made India proud by winning a gold medal at World Kickboxing Championship, another eight-year-old Kashmiri boy Abu Amaz has become national Thai Boxing Champion.
Abu Amaz, who hails from Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir, won gold in this category.
Remarkably, Amaz studies in second class.
For his achievement, he was recognised by state administration, civil administration and the police department.
Speaking about the feat of his son, his father Abbas Sadiq said he wants to prepare his son for Olympics.
Sadiq believes Amaz will make India proud at global level and he will progress in the right direction. Even locals are all praise for his achievements.
In the recent period, a lot of young boys and girls from Jammu and Kashmir have excelled in sports.
Earlier, Tajamul Islam became world’s youngest kickboxer to win an international gold. Despite hailing from a poor family, she devoted time to the sport and didn’t give up. Tajamul’s father, Ghulam Mohammad Lone, is a driver yet he encouraged his children to learn martial arts in Dar’s academy.
Clearly, the achievements by these students and several others are a shining example of sporting talent that the state offers. Despite facing challenges like lack of infrastructure support and encouragement from the government, these youth are fulfilling their dreams and aspirations.
