ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has shared a video of snow-covered lands of Gabin Jabba in Swat Pakistan, which he called a newly discovered site for skiing in the country.

The video showed children skiing in the picturesque landscape surrounded by snowy mountain tops and trees.

The premier predicted that Pakistan will soon become competitive in the Winter Olympics as the Swati children now have a place to practice skiing.

"This is a newly discovered skiing area in Gabin Jabba, Swat. Now that children are learning to ski in Swat, InshaAllah soon Pakistan will become competitive in Winter Olympics," PM Imran Khan wrote.

The 26-year-old competed in the Alpine Skiing Slalom event.
