Samar Khan is a Pakistani mountain biker and adventure athlete who is the first to cycle on the Biafo Glacier.
Khan is also the first Pakistani to have cycled on the Roof of Africa, UHURU PEAK, Kilimanjaro. She also holds a Master’s in Physics.
In a video on Twitter, Khan talks about her experience being interviewed on a TV show.
In the post, she revealed that the interviewer did not even know her full name and profile, and upon asking for a proper introduction like the one the man before her had gotten, Khan was asked to introduce herself or leave the show.
During the same show, athletes had also been made to sit together in a room with no basic facilities, while social media influencers with a huge following were given extreme importance.
Via a chain of Instagram posts, Khan proceeded to highlight the rights of athletes along with creating awareness about snow sports and its participants.
“The objective of my previous post was to expose few people/departments who take sports fraternity for granted,” she wrote in one of her posts.
Celebrities like Yasir Hussain and fans also shared their support for Khan and her journey on social media.
