Pakistani bodybuilder Naveed Butt returns home today


Lahore—Pakistani bodybuilder Naveed Butt will return home on Wednesday from America with the third ‘Mr Olympia Gold Medal’, he won last week in Las Vegas.
He will reach Lahore from New York at around 8pm through Pakistan International Airlines.
Naveed, who now has four gold medals, is the only Pakistani bodybuilder who despite his physical disability due to polio in his childhood, won the title for record third time and his fourth gold medal was from the World Championship.
Having set Arnold Schwarzenegger record of seven titles in mind, Naveed is doing his every bit to not only overcome his physical disability but also the financial hardships to only bring more glory for the country.
Overcoming the physical issues with his internal strength has taken him to such an height in the world but as far as the financial side of his life is concerned, it is yet to be covered because he had to take loan to take part in this year’s My Olympia contest. And as now the congratulatory remarks for his recent success coming from Chief Minister Punjab Mian Shahbaz Sharif, the likely chances are that he would be given monthly stipend by the Punjab government and similarly Sports Board Punjab would also be providing him long-term support to see him win more such titles for the country.—APP
