Nour El-Sherbini

Alexandria governor has appointed world champion as the governorate’s sports adviser.

Alexandria governor Mohamed Abdel-Zaher presented Nour El Sherbini with the Egyptian Olympic Committee shield as well as the memorial shield in an event in Alexandria’s Sporting club. Zaher also announced the appointment of Sherbini as Alexandria’s sports adviser in an effort to use Sherbini’s insights on promoting sports.

This announcement came after Sherbini had won the World Squash Championship and became World number 1 in April. Zaher said that her win brought some joy back to Egypt after a period of depression due to difficult circumstances.

“We will never forget what she offered to Egypt. She is a source of pride for Egypt and every Egyptian family.” he said.

At only 20-years of age, Sherbini became the youngest ever world squash champion and is set to play in the Professional Squash Association (PSA) World Series Finals in Dubai on the 24th of May.

Youssef Wael is a massive Al Ahly and Manchester United supporter from Cairo, Egypt. One of the few Egyptians who never really wanted to have a career in football, just played it as a hobby. Wael also played squash for 7 years.

    What a joke. Even if she’s talented and world champion at the moment what kind of advice will she be able to tell.. She’s only 20 years old and doesnt have experience or something. If she was 10 years older it would be another story.
