Greco-Roman wrestler Karam Ibrahim won Egypt's first Olympic gold medal in 56 years on Thursday, crushing Ramaz Nozadze of Georgia in just over three minutes to lift the 96kg title in Athens. The Egyptian anthem was last played at a medals ceremony at the 1948 Games in London when the Arab state won two gold medals.

In Athens, the Egyptian's opponents stood no chance as the tall, broad-shouldered wrestler used his strength and balance to win his bouts comfortably. Ibrahim blew kisses to the crowd and bowed as they applauded his win achieved in just over half the allotted six-minute period .The bout was concluded before the clock ran out because Ibrahim achieved a winning margin of at least 10 points.

Ibrahim was about to retire after some obstacles during his participation in the world championship of 2002 but the Egyptian minister of petroleum gave him an assignment in Petrojet
