Default Afghanistan wins yet another medal - 08-09-2012, 07:54 PM

He beat the host nation's Martin Stamper 5-3 to win bronze.

This was a big match for Stamper too since it would have been GBR's first medal in Taekwondo.

It was a well deserved win for Nikpai.
A gold would have been ideal but to get a medal at all (let alone twice in a row) is a great achievment.



UK people can see the match here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/olympics/19196078




Taekwondoka Nikpai adds more Olympic
glory to Afghanistan


LONDON, Aug. 9 (Xinhua) -- Taekwondoka Rohullah Nikpai came for a gold
medal on Thursday but a bronze was enough to fill his eyes with tears, as
he won the first medal at the London Olympic Games for his country
Afghanistan.


Nikpai, already a history-maker to bring Afghanistan's first ever Olympic
medal in Beijing 2008, also a bronze in the men's -58kg, edged Britain's
Martin Stamper 5-3 in a packed Excel arena.


"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.


Nikpai was raised in an Iranian refugee camp after his family fled the
violence in Kabul. He took up taekwondo at age 10 while still in exile and
returned to the Afghan capital in 2004.


Since returning from the Beijing Olympics, he has started his own
engineering company.


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

Very proud of him.

Well done Nikpah. Unlucky to lose to that Iranian guy, that Iranian guy scored a controversial point so it was tough luck for Nikpah to not win silver or gold. but still a medal is a medal.

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.

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!
