Egyptian boxer Hossam Bakr has qualified for the 2016 Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro after beating Ireland’s champion.

The 30-year-old defeated his opponent 3-0 earning a spot in the olympics and a bronze medal in the World Championship which was held in Doha, Qatar from 5-15 October.

Bakr made it to the World Boxing Championship after winning a golden medal at 2015 African Boxing Championship. He was one step away from competing for the golden medal, however, he lost in the semi-final against Cuba’s champion.

It is worth mentioning that this is the first medal for Egypt in the World boxing Championship in the past 10 years.
