Karam Gaber Ibrahim – Egyptian Gold Medalist

Congratulations to Karam Gaber Ibrahim. He won an Olympic Gold Medal at Athens 2004. He’s the first Egyptian to earn an Olympic gold medal in the living memory. He’s also a fellow Alexandrian


Congratulations for his coach and team members for their achievement.

Karam won a Gold Medal for the Greco-Roman Wrestling 96 kg, a truly non popular sport here in Egypt. I saw his final match and he just marvelled. He seems also to enjoy an Egyptian sense of humor and a real present.

Congratulations also to all who have seen their dreems come true and sincere wishes for those who have worked hard but haven’t realized their goals (yet).

It needs a genuine devotion to earn such medal. It also needs extra strength (especially from Egyptians) to conquor all obstacles and succeed (take my word for it – it’s not easy).

One final thought: STOP THE CLUMSY SUPPORT FOR EGYPTIAN SOCCER TEAMS. It is just a drain for resources that are better spent on other non popular sports. One idea: BAN the lousy game from being played officially for, say, a 10 year period.

Again, Congratulations Karam.
