Abdelrahman qualified for the 2016 Olympics in Rio after winning Egypt’s first-ever World Athletics Championships medal in the Javelin throw in Beijing 2015.

El-Ahmar’s award was mainly for his performances in October, when he led Zamalek to win the African Handball Champions League in Morocco, just months after rejoining Zamalek after a stint in Germany. He also participated with Egypt at the 2015 World Cup in Doha, Qatar.

El-Ahmar’s reasons for returning to the Whites are that he wants to win the African Handball Cup of Nations with Egypt in January, qualify to the 2016 Olympics in Rio and beat Espérance Sportive de Tunis in the African Super Cup so that he can feature in the Club World Cup with Zamalek once again.

’s Ehab Galal was named as the Coach of the Year, after his team’s excellent performances over the past 12 months.
