A Pakistani Christian shooter Gulfam Joseph qualified for the 2024 Paris Olympics.
Gulfam has become the first Pakistan athlete (shooter) to qualify for the Paris Olympics 2024 with a stunning performance in the World Championship that saw him finish third in qualification behind the Chinese in Cairo.
His gifted 10m air pistol shooting stunned the world by finishing third in the qualification round and then qualifying for the Paris Olympics ahead of India, Ukrainian, and a slew of other competitors.

Though he fell just short of winning gold, his achievement was enough to earn him the Olympic quota, which is considered a great honor for the country.
Gulfam has been under the consistent supervision of the Pakistan Olympic Association (POA) and the shooting federation of the country. 

For the second time in a row, he is enjoying an Olympic scholarship solely meant for talented athletes.
He stood up to the challenge in Cairo, leaving the best and some experienced shooters behind in the 10M air pistol event for a place in the Paris Olympics.

The 2024 Summer Olympics, also known as Paris Olympics 2024, will be held from July 26 to August 11, 2024.
It is great news for Pakistan sports that Gulfam has made the country proud by qualifying for the Paris Olympics.
This event is two years away and Gulfam held his focus to beat the best in the world, which is a big achievement. - Iram Imran
