Chairman of the Egyptian Shooting Federation, Hazem Hosny, has promised Olympic shooter Afaf al-Hodhod LE2 million if she wins a gold medal during this summer's Olympic Games in Rio. On Tuesday afternoon she is scheduled to compete in the women's 25m pistol qualifiers.
On Sunday, Hodhod exceeded the expectations of her coaches when she won fifth place in the women's 10m pistol rounds, becoming the first Egyptian player to reach such a high ranking in the history of the country's participation in the Games.
Hosny met with Hodhod in Rio on Monday and promised her LE2 million if she achieved a gold medal in her remaining competitions during this Olympics. Hosny said that prior to the Games, the directors of the Egyptian Olympic team were not anticipating that Hodhod would achieve such a high ranking in the contest.
