Pakistan will field at least six athletes at the World Judo Championship, scheduled to begin on August 20 in Kazakhstan, with the Pakistan Judo Federation (PJF) pinning its hopes on Shah Hussain Shah for medals.
PJF secretary Masood Ahmed confirmed that the squad comprises four male athletes including Shah and Wajahat Sarwar along with two other players — who will be shortlisted later — and two females.
“We’ve sent the notification to the government for the tournament,” Masood told The Express Tribune. “It’s very important for us to compete at the world championship as it will be serving as the 2016 Rio Olympics qualifier, so we are urging the government to issue the NOCs soon.”

A ninja or shinobi was a covert agent or mercenary in feudal Japan. The functions of the ninja included espionage, sabotage, infiltration, and assassination, and open combat in certain situations. Their covert methods of waging war contrasted the ninja with the samurai, who observed strict rules about honor and combat. The shinobi proper, a specially trained group of spies and mercenaries, appeared in the Sengoku or “warring states” period, in the 15th century,but antecedents may have existed in the 14th century,and possibly even in the 12th century.
