Hamada Hassan qualifies to Rio 2016 Paralympics
Egypt’s Hamada Hassan won silver in the 2015 International Paralympics Committee Athletics World Championship held in Doha to qualify to Rio 2016 Paralympics.
Egyptian high jumper Hamada Hassan won silver medal in the IPC World Championship’s Men’s high jump T42, coming second to United States’ Sam Grewe.
The 32-year-old broke both a personal and an African record with his result of 1.78 meters. The previous African record of 1.54 meters was set and held by Ghana’s Yusif Amadu back in May 2015.
Hamada’s silver medal is Egypt’s first of the World Championship. Following his record-breaking result, Hamada qualifies straight to the 2016 Rio Summer Paralympic games.
