Our National Fencing Team won the historic silver medals in the Fleuret (Foil) and Épée competitions at the 15th Pan Arab Games hosted by Algeria from July 5th to 15th, under the slogan "With sports we rise, and in Algeria we meet".

The men's team was represented by the runner-up to the "Fleuret" competition, namely: Hamad Al-Jallaf; Khalid Al-Marzouqi; and Khalifa Al-Kaabi, while the women's team, the "Épée" silver medalists, included Fajr Al-Marzouqi, Zainab Al-Hosani, and Sheikha Al-Zaabi.

The UAE's medal balance has risen to 13, and these numbers will continue rising, especially, after winning two silver medals in fencing, and two bronze medals in boxing by Jawaher Al Amiri, who won third place in the 48 kg competition, and Haya Jassim, who won third place "repeated" in the 52 kg competition. The two bronze medals are the first for the women's boxing team throughout our participation in the Pan Arab Games.

Historic Achievement

Sheikh Eng. Salem bin Sultan Al Qasimi, President of the Arab and United Arab Emirates Fencing Federation, who attended the second day's competitions, congratulated the male and female players, praising the historic achievement of UAE fencing in the "Pan Arab Games". He also congratulated the team's administrative director, Ali Jaber Al-Marzouqi, and the technical staff, made up of Fleuret coach Osama Adel Qandil and Russian Épée coach Georgi Lamanov.

His Excellency Sultan bin Mejren, head of the UAE sports delegation participating in the Arab Games, praised the brilliance of our male and female players in all competitions of the 15th edition of the Arab Games, including the fencing team. He added that the challenge is still ongoing as well as the UAE male and female players are quite ambitious and responsible, and are able to achieve more achievements in the Arab festival, which is a very special event, praising the efforts of the players and the technical and administrative staff of our national teams and all members of the delegation.

The head of the delegation expressed his thanks and appreciation to His Excellency, Yousef Saif Khamis Seubaa Al-Ali; Ambassador of the United Arab Emirates to Algeria, for his support and presence to support all national teams representing the country in various games and sports, in addition to providing all facilities for the success of UAE sports participation in the Arab Sports Festival.

Good Results

His Excellency Sultan bin Mejren added that the results are good in addition to the performance made by the Emiratis in the Pan Arab Games so far. Despite the short period of time in the preparation period, the participation was distinguished over the past days and calls for pride, especially in light of the participation of many teams with promising people and names competing in foreign events for the first time, affirming that the people of the UAE are able to raise the medal bag and promote the balance of achievements before the end of the Pan Arab Games.

Women's Volleyball Team

On the other hand, our women's volleyball team will play the match for the third and fourth places at ten in the morning (Friday) against Jordan after losing to its Tunisian counterpart 0-3 in the match that was played (Wednesday) at Harsha Hassan Hall , in the presence of His Excellency/ Yousef Saif Khamis Seubaa Al-Ali; Ambassador of the United Arab Emirates to Algeria, Sheikha Hayat bint AbdulAziz Al Khalifa, Vice President of the Union of Arab National Olympic Committees, and Counselor Mona Al Shamsi, President of the Appeal Committee of the Pan Arab Games.

The UAE ambassador met with the players of the volleyball team after the match, and praised the performance of the players and their efforts in the matches they played in the championship, despite the victory of the Tunisian team, which is due to the experience difference, pointing out that the rules of honest competition require accepting losses because everyone is a winner in the arena of sports competition.

The end of the Fencing Games

The UAE Fencing Team ended its competition "Wednesday", where the men's fencing team lost in the Épée competition against the Kuwait team, which includes Abdulaziz Al-Shatti, the Arab champion, and Hassan Al-Foudri, the Asian bronze medalist, 32-44 in the match that was played in the round of 8 of the Épée team competition. The team was represented by Abdullah Al-Hammadi, Mohammed Al-Mazmi and Imran Shahdad.

The Men's Sabre Team also lost to Saudi Arabia's team 28-45 in the quarter-finals. The team was represented by Abdullah Al-Salami, Khalifa Al-Abri and Ahmed Al-Hammadi.

Abdullah Al Hammadi, captain of the fencing team, said that the Arab Games are the best preparation for the upcoming fencing team events, primarily the World Fencing Championship to be held in Milan, Italy, from July 21 to 30. He also pointed out that the loss against the ancient Kuwaiti team, which began its march in the game in the eighties, does not underestimate the importance of our team, which previously beat Kuwait in the Arab Championship held in Bahrain last January, in which our team won a silver medal in the Épée competition.

Ali Al Marzouqi, the national team manager, said that what the team has achieved is an amazing historical achievement, as it was achieved for the first time and against strong competitors, including ranked teams. This opinion was shared by coach Osama Adel, who affirmed that the achievement is historic and deserved after the outstanding performance of our players and the winning of two silver medals, added to the achievements of UAE sports, pointing out that the focus in the coming period will be on young players to prepare a promising generation of heroes in the future.
