Sara Dilshad of Lahore, Ishrat from Jhang and Bahawalpur’s Hina showed excellent performance in the 70 metre competitions while Lahore’s Rimsha, Bahawalpur’s Farah Abbasi, Noorul Huda of Multan and Jhang’s Samia excelled in the 30m contests.

The participants said that there is a lot of scope for them in the sport.

“It’s the only way through which they can demonstrate their talents in various sports fields,” he added.
