TikTok Celebrity From Thatta To Join Pakistan Army’s Athletic Team
Pakistan Army has recruited TikTok star Asif Magsi, who has left many bewildered with his extraordinary long jumps, as a part of its athletics team.
In jaw-dropping stunts, the Thatta-based fisherman had jumped over 11 bikes and then over a water canal with the Pakistani flag in his hand.
Here’s another jump by talented Asif. His earlier video of jump over 11 motorcycles got everyone’s attention and encouraged AFP to call him. He’s, although, a raw talent but proper training can turn him into a future prospect for Pakistan. pic.twitter.com/MqMvpBrgZl

His jumps prompted the Pakistan Athletics Federation to offer him patronage where he would train with leading coaches. However, it seems that Magsi has decided to join the Pakistan Army’s athletics team.
Earlier, Athletics Federation’s President, Major General Akram Sahi, said, “I personally contacted Asif and invited him to Lahore where we will polish his skills and make him capable of representing Pakistan at the international level. I have asked our senior and finest coaches to observe him as soon as he reaches Lahore. I hope he will grow up in a sold prospect for Pakistan.”
He has even been praised by legendary track and field athlete, Carl Lewis, who said Magsi has the right temperament and attitude to be a good professional athlete.
Actually with his lack of fear, he has the perfect mindset. https://t.co/qYOTX40Cvn
