The wrestlers of the Maiwand club in Kabul and their head coach are back to training after a terror attack on their gym in September 2018. When a suicide bomber approached the gym, coach Ghulam Abbas slammed the door in his face, stopping him from entering. While 26 were tragically killed, it would have been many more if it weren’t for Teacher Abbas, as he’s affectionately known. (Photo courtesy of Ghulam Abbas.)
