Afghan Skiers Eye 2018 Olympics After World Championship
Skiers Alishah Farhang and Sajjad Husaini, who represented Afghanistan at the World Championship in St. Moritz, Switzerland, said they hope to become the first Afghan athletes at the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.
The two Afghan skiers are currently preparing for a competition in New Zealand.
“I will attend a qualifying competition for world championship in the near future. A year from now, I will attend the 2018 Olympics to represent Afghanistan there. I want to see the Afghan flag among the flags of other nations at the international event,” Husaini said.
Afghanistan Ski Federation said the skiers had to attend three international competitions and achieve good results to qualify for the Olympics games.
The federation said one of these important events will be held in August.
