Modern Pentathlon: Four Egyptians in World Cup final
Four Egyptian men have qualified for the UIPM 2016 Modern Pentathlon World Cup #1 final, which is taking place in Egypt’s Cairo International Stadium.
The Egyptian Modern Pentathlon Federation announced a list of 12 men and 12 women to represent Egypt in the tournament earlier this month.
The tournament, which kicked off on February 24, had three qualification groups for each gender, labeled A, B, and C, from which, a total of 36 men and 36 women moved to the final. No Egyptian woman made it to the final. The highest ranked Egyptian woman was Salma Abdel-Maksoud, who placed 20th in Qualification Group C, but that wasn’t enough to take her to the final.
In the men’s competition, four men successfully cruised to the final. In qualification Group A, Omar El-Geziry placed 1st with 1142 points to book his place in the final. In Group C, Amro El-Geziry, Yasser Hefny, and Eslam Hamad qualified to the final. Amro El-Geziry came in second place, despite sharing the same number of points as Hungary’s Adam Marosi, with 1133. Hefny was in third place with 1132 points, and Hamad placed 10th with 1125 points.
The tournament is set to conclude on February 28th with points earned during the tournament counting toward world ranking, which will determine qualification to the 2016 Rio Olympics.
