Jammu and Kashmir State Sports Council (JKSSC) is likely to recommend the name of 7-year old World Kick Boxing champion Tajam-ul-Islam for State Award 2017.
Tajam-ul-Islam last week created history by winning the gold medal for India in the World Kick Boxing Championship of Under-8 category in Italy's Andria. She defeated her rival from the US to become the world champion in the kick boxing championship. She is first such player to achieve the feat from Kashmir.
Meanwhile, in 2015, Islam won the national recognition after bagging the gold medal in sub-junior category National Kickboxing Championship in New Delhi.
A resident of Tarkpora village in Bandiora district, 65 km from Srinagar, Tajamul is a student of the Goodwill School. Islam's brother and two sisters also practice kickboxing.
While appreciating the talent, Jammu and Kashmir Stated Sports Council is likely to recommend Islam's name to the Government of Jammu and Kashmir for State Award.
Her achievement at the national level got her an entry to the World Championships, which was held at Andria in Italy in November.
