The Egyptian Olympic Committee (EOC) has named International Handball Federation (IHF) President Hassan Moustafa as the organisation’s Lifetime Honorary President.

The EOC said the award recognises the important role he has played in the Olympic Movement in Egypt, as well as his long sports career including his devotion to serving his country, the IHF and its members.

Moustafa was awarded the honour at a ceremony in Egypt. International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach wrote to Moustafa as part of the occasion.

“Dear friend, all my warmest congratulations on having been named Lifetime Honorary President of the Egyptian Olympic Committee,” the German President said.

“This well-deserved honour recognises your many decades of commitment and contribution to sport and the Olympic Movement in your country and beyond. Thank you also for everything you are doing as President of the International Handball Federation to promote the practice of sport worldwide.”
