Pakistan 800m runner is country's 'last hope' for Olympics


It has been a difficult Olympic Games for team Pakistan - their medal hopes were dealt a fatal blow on Tuesday when their hockey team lost 7-0 to Australia, knocking them out at the final group stage.

The team's swimmers, skeet shooting competitor and 100m entrant also failed to get past qualifying rounds.

The country's athletes have won 10 Olympic medals over 64 years at the games but have not brought home a medal since the 1992 Barcelona Games.

Can a 20-year-old 800 metre competitor from Lahore turn their fortunes around?
