Egypt Olympian Nada Meawad leads African Dream Team
Despite Shams' defeat in the final to hosts Club Feminin de Carthage in the final in Monastir, the Cairo-born 19-year-old was named MVP of the tournament.
The award was acknowledgement for her outstanding performance throughout the competition as she led her team to a top-ranking position in pool play, before knocking out Cameroon's Injis in the quarterfinals.
The last match of the competition against Al Ahly was Shams' first ever final at the continental showpiece and Nada's first individual award at this level.
Nada was the best scorer of the competition with a total of 122 points - 34 ahead of the second scorer Seraphine Mukantambara of Rwanda Army. She also had 15 kill blocks, as well as five aces.
The outside hitter began her international career with the Egyptian Girls U18 team, winning the African Championship in 2014, before she continued to play to the Egyptian U20 and U23 teams.
In 2015 she was selected to the senior national team for the first time to represent the top team of Egypt.
