Yes, you could not agree with this aforementioned statement. It is easy to train or learn something in the normal environment. But Hashim’s place was nothing but a violent mess. This was not the only problem he faced but the lack of resources and support were also one of the major hurdles in his way. He did manage to do all this because of the constant support he received from his coach, Faisal Ali.

Meanwhile, Hashim’s coach, Faisal Ali revealed that it was definitely not easy to achieve this success and medal. He also said, “It is a huge thing to win this Championship as there are not many resources for sports in Kashmir. Hashim faced a lot of hurdles to reach here.” Hashim also believed in luck when he said, Remaining away from school for many months offered me enough time to practice the sport of karate. It was perhaps lucky that I got so much time to practice under my coach.”

Bagging the Gold Medal

Hashim represented India at the Asian Youth Karate Championship which was held in the capital of the country. He was playing for the sub-junior category (below 25 kg category). This championship featured players from 19 other countries. He managed to defeat the Sri Lankan opponent in the final of the match. Had it not been the hard work of both Hashim and his coach, he would not have won the medal so easily. They both once again proved an old saying, “Hard work always pays off.”
