ISLAMABAD - Taekwondo Black Belt Ahmad Amin Bodla becomes the first Pakistani to have been officially inducted into the ‘USA Martial Arts Hall of fame’ and aims to put more records in his kitty for the country.

In a statement, Bodla said he was nominated for this award last year and was required to sign the acceptance letter. "Due to university commitments, I wasn't able to send the acceptance letter in time," he added.

He said this year, he had sent the acceptance form and had become member of the elite class of martial artists. "It is for the first time in history that a Pakistani martial artist has been inducted to martial arts hall of fame," he said and added: "My family and teachers have been a great support to me and I will keep making my country proud by winning more records.”
