I am sure that they were active participants in the Soviet war too.
Although your intention is perhaps noble, I have to correct you.

The only time Wardaks would've fought alongside Kohistani and Koh Damani would be in Kabul city, when there was local Kabuli uprisings against British, and people from the villages north and south of Kabul felt the need to intrude on Kabul. Otherwise, I have seen no record of Kohistani/Koh Damanis, fighting along side, or under or over Wardaks.

During the first two British Wars, when the British COULD NOT move an inch north of Kabul, Shomali Region (North Kabul, Parwan, Kapisa, Panjshir, South Baghlan) was categorized either as Kohistan (mountain lands) or Koh Daman (valleys). Kohistan of today refers to one Tajik district of Kapisa Province. The fighting that ensued in Kohistan and Koh Daman during the first two British wars and stories of the handsome defeat of the British by these Kohistanis and Kodamanis is well documented in the British archives and orally amongst the locals of Kohistan/Koh Daman and Kabul. It was however not recognized or thought in schools in "Afghanistan" until very late 20th century due to the apartheid Pashtunist system.

Today, the highest medal that "Afghanistan" can give is named after one of those British War KohDamani Tajiks, Ghazi Mir Bacha Khan Koh Damani. The second highest military medal (first being Ahmad Shah Massoud Medal) is named after a Kohistani Tajik, Mir Masjeedi Khan Kohistani.

Also, majority of people with surnames Kohistani today are from the district of Kohistan or Koh Band or settled Kabulis with grand parents and ancestors come from the old mountain areas of Shomali. Tahmina is a Tajik from the district of Kohistan in Kapisa, her father, Jawed Kohistani is a renowned and respected TOLO TV political analyst, who is one of those former fighters against Soviets of Ahmad Shah Massoud. Nesar Ahmad Bahawi, a strong gold medal chance in Taekwondo, world champion, flag bearer at opening ceremony is also a Kohistani/Tajik.

Who is the idiot that is the head of the athletics department. They need to build bettter facilities.

I found this article to be a good read about why certain countries win more than others. The richer countries win more medals.

HAHA I bet it burns you seeing this Bronze Medal won by a Hazara and the possibility of another medal being won by a Tajik. Get used to it!

The facilities are ok but one can never have enough resources. If they win another medal then they have overachieved, taking into account the fact that Khushals londawals are blowing themselves and everything else up, and would rather use the sporting facilities for executions.

I'm lead to believe that there will be more direct funding of specific sports after this Olympics. A similar corporate restructure will be initiated to the new Afghan Premier League Soccer. Sports where we have a history of competency will be encouraged, sports such as Wrestling (hugely popular in north but dying out due to soccer), Taekwondo, Judo and Weightlifting, we have a good chance at and will be encouraged through funding. Whereas, Track and field is a waste of time for light skins and will not be prioritized for funding.

we are proud of the athletes representing afghanistan, what you need to get used to is these non pashtun athletes waving the flag of "afghanistan" as you put it.


There is nothing in our book, the Qur'an, that teaches us to suffer peacefully. Our religion teaches us to be intelligent. Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone; but if someone lays a hand on you, send him to the cemetery. That's a good religion.

The soil, the mountains, the history, the rivers, the culture of Khurasan is eternal and engraved in us, for all to see. The name is temporary, give it time.
