Egypt’s Mohamed Ibrahim achieves gold in Wrestling U-23 World Championship


Egypt’s have succeeded to clinch the gold medal and win the U-23 World title in 67 kg after defeating Azerbaijan’s Karim Jafarov 8-0.

By this achievement, El-Sayed has reached a remarkable milestone as he became the first Egyptian at any age group and in any style to win the world championship since 2006.

The last Egyptian World champion was Mohamed Ibrahim Abdelfattah, who won a 2006 Senior World gold in Greco-Roman at 84 kg.

At the break, El-Sayed had held a 2-0 lead over 2012 Cadet World champion Jafarov, before resuming his dominant performance and kept capitalizing on his lead until closing on with 8-0 scoreline to win gold.

This is the second medal in Egypt’s record in the current U-23 championship in Bucharest after Abdel-Latif Mohamed previously triumphed in bronze medal contest at 13 kg.
