The long journey from Pakistan to the Championship
Submitted by Manos Moschopoulos on 8 July 2012
Team Pakistan talk to us in our Media Room. Their long journey from Pakistan to Mexico has been rewarded with becoming champions of this year's Karl Popper Debate Championship.
"There is a very active debate circuit in Pakistan but surprisingly most of the debates in Pakistan take place in English language not in Urdu. There are some debates in Urdu language and I can see room for having more debates in our language" said Daniyal Asad, the coach of Team Pakistan.
Team Pakistan was one of the 30 teams competing at this year's KPDC, defeating Korea in the final while proposing the immediate closure of Guantanamo Bay. Read more about Pakistan's win at the KPDC final.
