CYCLING: Ebtesam Zayed qualifies for Rio Olympics



20-year-old Egyptian cyclist has qualified for the Olympic finals in Rio later this year.

Ebtesam Zayed joins the rapidly growing Egyptian contingent at the summer showpiece event.

Ebtesam came in 12th place in the women’s road race at the African Continental Championships, which took place in Morocco between the 21st and 26th of February.

This is the third time in history that Egypt has been represented in Olympic cycling, after Ahmed Salem Hassan and Mohammed Madkour joined the 1924 Olympics in Paris and Mahmoud Abbas, Mohammed Abdel-Fattan, Mohammed Kholafy and Amr El Nady took part in Sydney 2000.
