First Baloch Girl to appear in Rio Olympics 2016
Grand Daughter of renowned Baloch Leftist, scholar and academia, Madiea Ghafoor, 23 years old athlete, will create history when she becomes the first Baloch girl to take part at the Olympics.
Born and bred in Amsterdam but her parents hail from poverty-stricken old area of Lyari Karachi. The youngster will be representing the Netherlands in the 4x400m relay along with her team in Rio.
She is the granddaughter of the late Lal Baksh Rind, a senior politician whose diverse work included striving for the betterment of the relatively impoverished locality in Karachi.
Talking about her ethnic uniqueness in the Games, Madiea revealed she was unaware that she was the first female Baloch to feature at the Olympics.
