and failed to make it through to the next round of the 400 meter race as they were not in the top eight.

Despite the fact that El-Kamash was the first in his group; however, his 3.47.43 record was not good enough to book him a place in the semi-finals.

Al Ahly’s Akram came 4th in his countryman’s group, recording 3.49.46 seconds which did not earn him a spot in the semis either.

Nevertheless, the Egyptians can still win some medals as El-Kamash will participate in the 200 metre race, whil Akram will compete in the 1500 metre race.

It is worth mentioning that Marwan El-Kamash’s record is his life-time best in addition to it being the best record achieved by an Indiana University student.

A medical student who loves football. Any free time I have is usually dedicated to football. I support Al Ahly and Real Madrid (Al Ahly comes first of course). Contrary to popular belief, I believe that females enjoy football as much as males do; I am a living proof :D Proud that I am writing for King Fut.
