EGYPT won two medals in the Special Olympics World Winter Games, 15-25 March, held in Austria. Egypt’s gold medal was won by Mohamed Abdou and a bronze medal was won by Alaa Abdel-Aziz, both in the snowshoeing 100-metre race which took place in the city of Schladming.

The Egyptian delegation took part in floor hockey and snowshoeing.

More than 2,600 athletes from 105 nations took the Special Olympics oath promising, “Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.” It is the largest sporting event in the world for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
