Nikpah does it again for Afghanistan

Rohullah celebrates his win at the London Olympics

Rohullah Nikpah has added to Afghanistan’s Olympic glory yet again, winning a Bronze medal  at the London Olympic Games. He defeated his British opponent, Martin Stamper, 5-3 in the men’s 68kg Taekwondo event on Thursday.

 “It’s the second consecutive time that I’ve won the bronze medal at the Olympics, I’m very happy because this medal is very important to my country. I had hoped it would be a gold,” said the 25-year-old.

“Getting a medal is very important to all the countries in the world, but especially for Afghanistan. I love Afghanistan,” he added.

“I have to thank everyone who supported me but, from the bottom of my heart, I would especially like to thank all the Afghan refugees who came here to support me. It means a lot to me, and I’m very happy for that and for the bronze medal,” he said.

Nikpah was already a history maker, bringing Afghanistan’s first ever Olympic medal in Beijing 2008, also a bronze.

 Until Beijing, Afghanistan had taken part in 12 Olympic Games since their first appearance at Berlin 1936, but had never produced a medallist.
