Sports Beyond Boundaries

Hatim1

Hatim Mohamed Elfatih was a Kung Fu champion in Khartoum. He was also a certified coach. His father decided to send Hatim and his three brothers to India for studies. After settling down with his studies in New Delhi for a Bachelor’s degree of Computer Applications (BCA), he could not stay away from Martial Arts for too long. He found out about a Korean coach for Taekwondo and started practicing the new variant of martial art. Within six months his skill was noticed by his master and he was selected to participate in the Chuncheon Open International Taekwondo Championship in Korea. As expected by his coach, he won the first place in the Yellow Belt category. Interestingly, he was considered as a participant from India. When this writer asked Hatim how it felt to represent India being a Sudanese, he replied that he was very happy and proud to represent India. He thanks India for having been given the opportunity to participate in an International Martial Arts Competition. This is a real illustration of Sports Beyond Boundaries.
