AS THE world is busy following the beautiful game at the World Cup in Russia, other champions are breaking records at the Mediterranean Games currently taking place in Tarragona, Spain. While Egypt’s football team failed to make it to the second round of the World Cup, Egyptian teams in swimming, weightlifting, karate, shooting, wrestling and gymnastics have gone the opposite route. By day four, Egypt had collected 29 medals in those six sports — 11 gold, seven silver and 11 bronze. Egypt’s golden fish Farida Osman has won the most medals among her teammates with two gold and one silver. Egypt are currently in fifth place in the medals standings following Italy, Spain, France and Turkey.
