222 Pakistani Athletes Set to Participate in Asian Games 2023: The Asian Games 2023 are about to kick off in Hangzhou, China. Pakistan is stepping into this sports extravaganza with a team of 222 athletes backed by 65 officials. The games run from September 23 to October 8, and Pakistan’s athletes – both men and women – are geared up to give their all in various sports.
Sadly, due to insufficient funds, Pakistan won’t be fielding athletes for baseball and gymnastics. The Pakistan Sports Board (PSB) couldn’t provide the needed financial support for these two sports, leading to their absence.
Furthermore, Pakistani football and equestrian teams won’t participate in this grand event either, as they missed the application deadline. Despite having the potential to excel, they missed the opportunity to prove themselves at the Asian Games due to the submission delay.
Nonetheless, the spirit of Pakistani athletes remains unbroken. They are all set to strive hard in the remaining sports categories to bring glory to their homeland. Despite the hiccups, they’re focused on showcasing their skills and making their nation proud at this Asian sports event.
