In Islamabad and Skardu, the Pakistan Sports Board (PSB) will build a cutting-edge biomechanics lab and a world-class, high-altitude fitness training center to bring Pakistani athletes up to speed with the best in the world.
“It’s apparent that our athletes need to improve their fitness levels, and that can only be done with the support of adequate equipment and training,” Col Asif Zaman, DG, PSB, told the media. We have been working on this aspect and are on the verge of achieving key targets.”
Col Asif, who is also a junior squash champion, responded to a question about the biomechanics lab by saying that they would bring in experts to teach the players in the state-of-the-art facility since no country can create world-class athletes without modern equipment.
“Without a biomechanics lab, you can’t have world-class athletes.” To set up the lab, we bought the greatest equipment available. We’ll hire professionals to equip the lab and teach our workers to manage it.”
PSB has already purchased the land and will soon create a high-class fitness training center in Skardu for leading national athletes as well as kids, according to Col Asif.
