Archer Shehzana sets sights on Rio

18 February 2016, 12:31

Nairobi - As the 2016 Rio Olympic Games approaches, Kenya's Shehzana Anwar, 13-years-old, has set her sights on qualifying for the Games.

The young archer also added that it would be an honour to fly her country's flag and said that despites the disadvantages she has compared to her competitors, she has still not given up her dream.

"It has always been my dream to represent Kenya at the Olympic Games but you can never set yourself up to the challenges ahead because one has to leave room for disappointment," she told the-star.co.ke.

"I always set myself up to do my absolute best and whatever the results, I will be happy to have flown the country's flag.

"International standards require archers to at least have two bows during competition and more than ten arrows. This enables you to have back up in case one bow breaks during competition. However, this has not stopped my dream and I am already planning my training ahead of Rio 2016."
