According to the same source, we have tallied up to 11 medals in this year's Paralympics; the winners include Eldib Mohamed, Randa Tag El-Dine, and Sherif Othman winning golds. While Rehab Ahmed, Fatma Omar, Amr Mosaad and Mostafa Mohamed taking home the silvers. Last but not least, Shaaban Ibrahim, Amal Mahmoud, and Amany Ali received bronzes. The sports they took over are Men's 97 kg and 107 kg, powerlifting, and athletics
This year has been a triumphing one for Egyptian athletes regardless of their abilities, but those who managed to challenge stereotypes and stand against ableism deserve to be honoured upon their return.
