Biography

Prior to his appearance at the 2012 Summer Olympics, Abdelrahman El-Trabily’s best international result was second in the super-heavyweight category at the 2011 African Championships. He earned a spot on Egypt’s 2012 Olympic team as the runner-up in the same division at the Africa and Oceania qualification tournament, behind Tunisia’s [Radhouane Chebbi]. El-Trabily, after receiving a bye in the first round in London, had the misfortune of meeting Cuba’s [Mijaín López], the 2008 Olympic Champion who would defend his crown in 2012. In the repêchage he lost against Georgia’s [Guram Pherselidze]. A graduate of Egypt’s prestigious Al-Azhar University and a teacher of the Quran by career, El-Trabily was shot in the head and killed in August 2013 during a march in support of Egypt’s ousted president Mohamed Morsi.
