EGYPT’s Kitesurfing International Championship recently concluded in the resort of El Gouna in the Red Sea. The one-week event was deemed a huge success by the competitors, spectators and El Gouna residents and visitors. Altogether, 50 Egyptian and foreign male and female athletes representing 25 nations took part in the event which was held in lovely sunny weather and cool moderate winds. The Egyptians fared well at the event with champion Emad Mahmoud coming in fourth place. President of the Sailing and Water Ski Federation Medhat Khalil announced that the international federation had agreed, after the “superb” organisation of the event, to host the World Youth Kitesurfing Championship in El Gouna in June.
