Currently the Asian long jump record stands at 27.82 feet. The matter was brought to the knowledge of Athletics Federation of Pakistan (AFP) President Maj Gen (r) Akram Sahi, who took little time in reaching out to the talented youngster.
“The moment I saw your message about this youngster, I left my breakfast halfway and deputed my coaches to locate him. Only minutes later I was told that Asif Machliwala has immense talent for athletics and wants to become an athlete,” General Sahi said.
“There is no denying the fact that Asif has amazing potential and now we want to channelise this potential into a medal winning one at the Asian and world level. The AFP will train him and look after him. A coach will be deputed with him so that he can get the most modern and latest coaching on how to improve on his talent,” General Sahi added.
