Pakistanis can’t get enough of praising weightlifter Nooh Dastagir Butt, who won the gold medal for the country in the Commonwealth Games 2022 with a record lift of 405kg.

It was the first gold for Pakistan in any category in the ongoing games in the United Kingdom city of Birmingham.

Butt has set a new Commonwealth Games record by lifting 173kg in snatch in the 109+kg category. Butt also set another record by lifting 232kg in clean and jerk. Overall, he lifted 405kg — another CWG record.

Due to his achievement, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif congratulated the athlete for providing Pakistan with a proud moment.

A Twitterati told the prime minister that praise was not enough to mark the occasion and that a flyover should be named after Butt.

In response, the prime minister said: “Or a dam?”

It is unclear if PM Shehbaz was serious about naming a dam after Butt or if he said it in jest.
