Ski Federation of Pakistan (SFP) will keep their expectations realistic, with Pakistan’s sole athlete Muhammad Karim takes the stage on February 19 in Sochi

Growing up among some of the world's highest mountains in the northern region of Gilgit-Baltistan Pakistan, Karim caught the skiiing bug early -- albeit with none of the expensive kit that many Western skiers grow up with.

"I started skiing at the age of four years on wooden skis made by my uncle. Our schools were closed in the winter and skiing was the only way to spend our holidays,” he told AFP.

While Muhammad Abbas, who became the first Pakistani to compete in Winter Olympics in 2010, Karim was also expected to put up a good show. Abbas ended up performing better than many skiers from ski-developed countries. Even though this time the competition is tough, we want Karim to complete the spirit finish course and not fall down.

Finally, long awaited, Pakistan vs India, infront of each other on 30th March, in Worldcup semifinal, will be played in India.
Best of luck Pakistan - The Champions

Background

The Indian and Pakistani cricket teams have been long-time arch rivals and their rivalry is considered one of the most intense sports rivalries in the world. An India-Pakistan cricket match has been estimated to attract up to one hundred million television viewers according to well respected TV ratings firm Initiative, and defeat is usually unacceptable to fans of both teams

The rivalry began with the Partition of India in 1947, with Pakistan being created, the subsequent Kashmir dispute and the wars and conflicts that followed afterward between the two countries. This dispute has affected both diplomatic and political relations, and the same animosity can be felt on the field. A match between the two countries is often equated with war. Often a political or diplomatic tension has a fallout on the cricket relations between the two countries including suspension of cricket tours to the other country.
