Pakistan’s first winter olympics skier….

Posted by Raza Rumi

Pakistan’s Muhammad Abbas, left, arrives for a free skiing session at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics in Whistler, British Columbia, Monday, Feb. 22, 2010. Abbas, Pakistan’s first Winter Olympian, started skiing by strapping two planks of pine wood to his shoes with thick rubber bands. He honed his skill through observation, studying other skiers on a tiny slope near his home. Look at Abbas now. He’ll have real ski boots and real skis as he heads down the same slope as Bode Miller, Ted Ligety and Aksel Lund Svindal in the giant slalom race Tuesday at the Vancouver Games.
