Mostafa Mohamed

Mostafa Mohamed (Arabic: مصطفى محمد; born August 18, 1985) is an amateur Egyptian Greco-Roman wrestler, who played for the men's featherweight category.[1] Mostafa represented Egypt at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, where he competed for the men's 55 kg class. He received a bye for the preliminary round of sixteen match, before losing out to Azerbaijan's Rovshan Bayramov, with a technical score of 0–12.[2] Because his opponent advanced further into the final match, Mohamed offered another shot for the bronze medal by entering the repechage bouts. Unfortunately, he was defeated in the first round by Cuba's Yagnier Hernández, who was able to score nine points in two straight periods, leaving Mohamed with a single point.[3]
