Abbas Karimi, an Afghan-American para-swimmer, secured a spot in the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games.

Qasim Ali Hamidi, president of the Afghan Swimming Federation, highlighted Abbas Karimi’s achievement with three gold medals in the 50m butterfly, 50m backstroke, and 50m freestyle events, defeating his competitors.

Mr. Hamidi emphasized that Abbas Karimi successfully qualified for the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games despite challenges.

It should be noted that these competitions were hosted by the city of Minneapolis, USA.

However, many Afghan athletes face significant challenges due to the lack of attention and support. The sporting infrastructure in Afghanistan has suffered greatly in recent years, affecting training facilities and opportunities for athletes.

The ongoing political instability in Afghanistan has further exacerbated the difficulties faced by athletes, making it harder for them to compete internationally and pursue their sporting ambitions.
