Afghan Golfers Triumph At Bangladesh Tournament

Afghan female golfers also played in the tournament. Although they fared well, they were not able to bring home any medals.

The Afghan national golf team returned home on Monday from an international golf event in Bangladesh after having won one gold medal and one bronze medal.

Afghanistan’s Hashmatullah Sarwari won gold for his country while Imran Ali won bronze.

“I worked hard to be fully prepared for the tournament and I was committed to win a gold medal for my country and with the help of Allah I made it and gained the championship medal,” said Sarwari.

Eight nations participated in the 32nd Bangladesh Amateur Golf Championship.

“We underwent a one week technical and professional training program under the supervision of the International Golf Federation and the training helped us to be in better form at high level events and the training played a key role in our win. Eight countries were invited to the tournament and Afghanistan became the champions by winning gold and bronze medals,” said Imran Ali.

Afghan female golfers also played in the tournament. Although they fared well, they were not able to bring home any medals.

“Female golfers attended the championship from three countries, unfortunately we did not win medals, because the level of the competition was very high, but my recommendation to the girls is to work hard and make a name for Afghanistan as we did,” said female golfer Laila Sajjadi.

Imran Ali also won a bronze medal for Afghanistan in 2012 while Nasir Daryab of Afghanistan also won a bronze medal in 2009.

Apart from host Bangladesh, golfers from Afghanistan, Bhutan, India, Pakistan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and Malaysia competed in the four-day event.
