Bahawi, in extreme agony, during his second match against Eduardo from Argentine

To raise donations online for Afghan Taekwondo Athlete Nesar Ahmad Bahawi, who got injured in the Olympics championship games today.

Nesar Ahmad Bahawi is an Afghan Taekwondo athlete that participated at the London Olympics 2012, representing Afghanistan. He was dreaming to win the first ever gold medal for his homeland. Although he got injured during the training, he participated in the competition, won his first and third matches. His third match was a show of class and resilience. He did not give up and went for a bronze medal in his fourth match, but lost the match due to the injury he had picked up. His resilience won even the admiration of officials, spectators, and the entire Afghan nation. BBC's Taekwondo commentator said: " I don't know if he's gonna end up with an Olympic medal, but he ought to get some kind of commendation from The Queen for bravery...You cannot fight with Afghan bravery."

In this way, Bahawi made an entire nation proud. He brought tears of joy to the people's eyes.

This comes when such athletes need regular medical checkup and treatment, but they are not provided with such services well. Bahawi is in pain now. He is in agony. He needs proper medical treatment to fully recover. We, the people, want to help him by some fundraising. This is the least we can do to appreciate his strength, endurance, and resilience. He fought for his homeland, for his people, for us all.

نثار احمد یک تکواندوکار است که در مسابقات المپیک 2012 از افغانستان نمایندگی کرد. آرزوی بهاوی، به مانندِ هم تیمی‌اش روح الله نیکپا، آوردن اولین مدال طلا برای میهن‌اش بود. اما او در جریان تمرینات جراحت برداشت، با آن هم مسابقۀ اول و سوم خود را برد. رقابت سوم نشان‌دهندۀ شایستگی و ایستادگیِ او بود. بهاوی با وجود درد، از پا نایستاد و برای گرفتن مدال برونز وارد مسابقۀ چهارم شد، لیکن درد شدید سبب شد تا مسابقه را واگذار کند.

ایستادگیِ او حتا تحسین مسوولین، تماشاچیان، و شهروندان افغان را برانگیخت. مبصر تکواندو در بی‌بی‌سی گفته است: نمی‌دانم آخرش مدال المپیک خواهد گرفت یا نه، اما باید از طرف ملکه به خاطر شجاعت‌اش تحسین شود... نمی‌توان با شجاعت افغانی جنگید".

بدین‌گونه، بهاوی ملتی را افتخار بخشید. او اشک شوق را در چشمان مردم آورد.

البته این در حالیست که این ورزشکاران با وجود نیاز، خدمات پزشکی منظم و موثری را دریافت نمی‌کنند. بهاوی حالا درد می‌کشد، دردِ شدید. او برای توان‌یابی مجدد نیاز به تداوی موثر دارد. ما، مردم، می‌خواهیم با گردآوری کمک مالی به پشتیبانی او بشتابیم. این حداقل کاریست که برای قدردانی از ایستادگی، قدرت، و مقاومت بهاوی می‌توانیم انجام دهیم. او برای سرزمین خود، مردم خود، و همۀ ما، مبارزه کرد.
