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.
It is pertinent to mention here that PM Imran Khan witnessed the inaugural ceremony of the Beijing Winter Olympics 2022 during his recent visit to China.
Among other athletes, Muhammad Karim from Gilgit-Baltistan was the only Pakistani athlete to participate in the Olympics.
The 26-year-old competed in the Alpine Skiing Slalom event.
