Here the Olympiad ... Sixth place is the best achievement for the Pharaohs in the Olympic Game

Here, the Olympiad is a continuous series during the month of Ramadan on the previous Olympic Games and the most important information about the Egyptian missions and the history of their participation in the Olympiad from its inception until now.

The handball team succeeded in qualifying for the Olympiad after crowning the African Nations Championship in Tunisia, after defeating the owner of the land, and the Egyptian Olympic team was drawn in the group of death, accompanied by Denmark and Sweden, the champion and runner-up of the last World Championship, and the only two teams who were able to beat the Pharaohs In the World Cup.

By going back to history, we find that the Pharaohs of the hand participated in the Olympiad 6 times before, in Barcelona 1992, Atlanta 1996, Sydney 2000, Athens 2004, Beijing 2008, and finally the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics.

The best position achieved by the national team was in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, and Beijing 2008, occupying sixth place, as the national team drew 32/32 with its Icelandic counterpart. The team lost three consecutive matches and did not achieve any victory in the five matches it played during the first round competitions.

These results brought back to mind the exit of the Egyptian national team from the competition before it in Athens 2004, where it lost in the five matches it fought in the Olympiad.
