4 years ago. A shot at an #athletics documentary about a 15 year old #Dalmia resident dreaming of dreams beyond #Karachi.

Abdul Mueed won National Juniors title twice, picked up two medals at South Asian Juniors in SL, one at the SAF Games in Nepal.

Full of glitches, shaky frames and typos. But such beautiful memories.

2 years of shooting training footage of Mueed at NCC with his team mates. A year of editing.

Here is the private, final cut that fixed some of the problems in the public cut

And the backstory about the star from Dalmia

The years 2015-2020 have revealed an insidious disregard for the #female category by #OlympicGames @olympics executives and their corporate sponsors.
Male (XY) 🧬athletes now allowed into XX events.
Time to take stock re #women’s #sports.
Where did we begin?
Where are we going?
Our story begins in the Egyptian Middle Kingdom (2000 B.C.)
Forms of women’s competition were somewhat different than we experience in 2020 A.D.
Contests revolved around two key aspects of #Egyptian life:
1. Food acquisition- #hunting & #fishing
2. Entertaining - #acrobatics
True #sports for women really began in Ancient Greece during the Classical period (400 B.C.). Unmarried girls had their own private competitions - also at Olympia every 4years.
These were separate from the men’s games.
The festivals were held in honour of Hera, wife of Zeus.
