VIDEO: Egypt’s Shaaban Ibrahim wins fifth Paralympic medal
Egyptian powerlifter Shaaban Ibrahim won a bronze medal in the men’s -65 kg event at the Rio 2016 Paralympics on Saturday.
The 40-year-old missed out on his first attempt before lifting 191 kg and 193 kg on the second and third attempts respectively, to secure the bronze medal.
China’s Peng Hu claimed the silver medal after lifting 200 kg, while Paul Kehinde of Nigeria broke the Paralympic and world record with a 218 kg lift to secure the gold medal.
