The honorary medal is a token of appreciation awarded by the president of Egypt to parties or an individual who serve the country, or demonstrate excellence in a field of science, arts, or sports.

According to Zamalek‘s official website, El-Ahmar was awarded the medal for his efforts with the Egyptian national handball team in the men’s military championship. This also comes after Egypt’s triumph in the 2014 and 2016 African Handball Championships.
