With great hope of achieving a new achievement in her sports career, Hadia entered a rigorous training camp, in Cairo, before traveling to Tokyo to participate in the Olympics.


Hadia Hosny's life is full of difficult equations that she was keen to pass successfully, including balancing her sports activity and her political and parliamentary work, as she is a member of the Egyptian Parliament and the African Parliament in South Africa.


From Tokyo, Hadia Hosny said in an exclusive interview with "Sky News Arabia" that she obtained a leave of absence from the House of Representatives during the training period and participation in the Olympics, which begins on July 23.


Hadia added that her colleagues in the House of Representatives, like her coaches and fellow players, are all keen to support her strongly to raise Egypt's name in the world championships, and stressed that her sports activity does not affect her service role for citizens and the fulfillment of their interests, and that she has learned the art of time management and that no activity has any effect on its counterpart.

Preparing for the Olympics


And about the nature of the badminton competitions she is playing in Tokyo, she said that it will be "my doubles" and "mixed pairs", while the previous participations were "singles" only.


Hadia continued, saying that she joined a closed training camp in Cairo, and the Confederation of African Football is supervising the training of Egyptian players qualified for the Olympics, through an expert coach from South Africa, who has great experience and history in badminton, and is assisted by the main Egyptian training team.


The Egyptian champion and parliamentarian confirmed her pride in qualifying this time for the Olympics, as she qualified and is a member of the Egyptian and African parliaments, which makes her more challenging and keen to achieve a greater achievement than previous participations.


The "Egyptian Queen" pointed out that any sports or political title she gets is due to her being primarily Egyptian, and this is the most important title for her.


genetics championة


The Egyptian champion belongs to a large sports family, and her mother's grandfather is the Egyptian weightlifter Mr. Nassir, the owner of the weightlifting gold, the first gold in the history of Egypt at the Olympics.


She was born on July 30, 1988 and is considered the best Egyptian, Arab and African player in the history of badminton.


Hadia started playing badminton at the age of 12 and won the third place in the Egyptian Championship, and she maintained the title of "First Republic" for years, then the African champion, and she played before badminton "gymnastics, squash and equestrian".


History of tournaments


Hadia Hosny qualified for the Olympics twice, in 2008 and 2012, and was crowned in April 2020 with the award for the ideal woman in badminton in Africa, and the Confederation of African Football said at the time: "The award went to the Egyptian Queen Hadia Hosny, who is considered a role model and a role model on and off the field."


Hadia dreams of establishing a new generation of badminton champions in Egypt, and has established a special academy to teach young people the game, and aspires to qualify them to participate in international tournaments.


Badminton is a hemisphere attached to a shuttlecock. It is played with rackets that are lighter than squash rackets, and in covered halls smaller than tennis courts, and is played by players single, double, or mixed.


Scientific excellence and political participation


Hadia's superiority did not stop at sports and political work only. She is also an assistant teacher at the College of Pharmacy for "pharmacology" or toxicology and medicine, and she holds a master's degree in biological sciences from the British University of Bath.


The Egyptian champion was chosen as the ambassador of the International Badminton Federation in the Peace and Sports Cup in Dubai in May 2014.

Hisham El-Tohamy, head of the Egyptian Badminton Federation, said that the three players who qualified for the women's doubles and mixed doubles competitions participated in more than 20 international championships during the past two years, in Asia and Europe, until they were able to qualify.


Al-Tohamy added, in statements to "Sky News Arabia", that the Badminton Federation provides them with all aspects of support so that they can achieve a new achievement for their country.


The head of the Badminton Federation confirmed that the superiority of the Egyptian trio required 4 years of work and training, leading to an unprecedented qualification in the history of badminton in Egypt, with the rise of 3 players at once.
