He competed in badminton competition and won gold in every type of the game.

At first he won gold in men singles afterwards he won gold with a male partner Muhammad Nouman and after that he paired with Qurat-ul-Ain in mixed doubles and also won gold medal in that competition as well. Pakistani participants showed great courage to stand against the participants of those countries who have great facilities and funds. 15 year Old Muneeb also won 2 medals in 25m breast stroke and 25 meter free style swimming events.

Its just the opportunities that are required else Pakistan has got great talent.
