Afghanistan: Taliban do not recognise female athletes in Olympic Team

Shafaqna English- Taliban do not recognise the three female athletes who will represent Afghanistan at the Paris Olympic Games this month, a spokesman for their sports department said.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has invited a squad of six Afghan athletes — three women and three men — in consultation with Afghanistan’s largely exiled national Olympic committee.

“Only three athletes are representing Afghanistan,” said Atal Mashwani Spokesman of the Taliban government’s sports directorate, referring to the male competitors.
