Egypt has been doing nothing but showing its talent to the world. Young Egyptians are making us proud, starting from Mo Salah to Nour El Sherbini and now Hedaya Malak, who is an Olympic medalist. Hedaya is empowering the women of Egypt by proving that they can do anything.
Hedaya Malak won a bronze medal in the World Taekwondo Grand Prix that was held at the famous Italian Colosseum in Rome on Friday, June 7th.
Malak started Taekwondo at the age of six with her younger brother. She ranked first in the Giza governorate tournament, before winning Egypt’s championship at the age of 14.
She attended the Olympics in both 2012 and 2016, and since then she has been spreading success. Last February, she won gold at the Cyprus International Championship and also won the Egyptian International championship. In March she was crowned with a bronze medal at the US open Taekwondo.
Malak has participated in many championships and tournaments, including The Olympic Games, World Championships, Grand Prix, Student World Championships, Continental Tournaments, Military World Games, and Open competitions.
Hedaya is currently getting ready for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic qualifiers, and Egyptians are giving her all the support in the world. We have faith in this generation.
