Nikpa warmly welcomed home

The inciting Afghans awarded red- carpet welcome to Olympic medalist Rohullah Nikpa who victoriously returned home Tuesday as thousands of people waiting in long queue at Kabul International Airport to receive the Olympic hero and his entourage amid chanting slogans in favor of sport. A long convoy of motorcades and horse riders were slowly moving on the road leading to the airport to welcome the medalist. The roads and government building were seen decorated with the pictures of the Nikpa and banners inscribed with slogans encouraging sport and athletes. Afghan taekwondo player, Rohullah Nikpa, was the first Afghan athlete who had won bronze medal in Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. Nikpa secured bronze again in London Olympics 2012 on Aug. 9.
