Despite being home to nearly 160 million people, nobody from Bangladesh has ever even qualified for an Olympics — their competitors have all been wildcard entries — let alone reached the podium. Athletes and administrators admit they face huge obstacles to win medals, including a lack of facilities and funding, along with an overriding obsession with the non-Olympic sport of cricket. But after becoming the first Bangladeshi to gain a berth at Rio, Baki — a shooter who won 10 <...

A Bangladeshi sporting legend is supporting a project set up by an Etihad cabin crew member to help children in Dhaka escape life in the slums.
