Sherif Osman breaks records, wins Egypt’s first gold of Rio Paralympics
Sherif Osman has claimed Egypt’s first gold medal of the Rio 2016 Paralympics, winning the men’s -59 kg powerlifting event held on Friday.
The 33-year-old broke his own Paralympic and world records on his way to win gold. He lifted 203 kg in the first attempt and 211 kg in his final attempt of the 59 kg competition to win Egypt’s first medal at the 2016 Paralympics, which runs from September 7 to 18.
The Egyptian champion enjoyed a comfortable victory as Ali Jawad of Great Britain won silver after lifting 190 kg. China’s Quanxi Yang came third after a lift of 170 kg.
Osman, who used to compete in the -56 kg event, is now a three-time Paralympic gold medalist as he won gold in Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games after a lift of 202.5 kg. He also clinched the gold medal in London 2012, winning Egypt’s first gold medal of the Games as well after lifting 197 kg.
