Egyptian ref finds place among
refereeing elite

African referees to take charge of matches at the FIVB Beach
Volleyball World Championships Mazury 2013 and his rise to the top
level has been meteoric.

from Africa in what was only his second tournament as an
international referee. Following his first appearance at the Agadir
Open in 2011, after he passed the international referees assessment,
he was nominated as an international referee in 2012.
