Rowing the Atlantic Ocean
On the 12th of December 2017, I am teaming up with Omar Nour (Team O2) to take one of the world’s toughest rowing attempts and cross the Atlantic, making us the first Egyptian and Arab team competing with other teams from all over the world. A 5000 km journey that starts from San Sebastian de la Gomera in the Canary Islands, to Nelson’s Dockyard English Harbour in Antigua. If it was not for the support of our sponsors and their belief in Team O2, this dream would have never come true.
In Partnership With
The North & South Poles
In December of 2014 I became the 1st Egyptian to successfully ski to the South Pole and in April 2015 to the North Pole making me the 1st Egyptian to complete the Explorer Grand Slam. If it was not for the support of my sponsors and their belief in me, this dream would have never come true. Special thanks to Hesham Ezz El Arab, Romany Hafez, Rami Heikal and Maha Saad.
In December of 2013 I became the only Egyptian and Arab to win the Axe Apollo space competition and get a chance to become Egypt’s first Astronaut in 2016. This upcoming attempt will be made possible through the support of Unilever and XCOR Space Expeditions.
Operator of the Spaceflight
In June of 2013 I became the 1st Egyptian to successfully climb the highest mountain on every continent. If it was not for the support of my sponsors and their belief in me, this dream would have never come true. Special thanks to Inas El Anwar, Omar Mandour, Hassan El Shadowy, Sam Whittam, Ahmed Younes, Mohamed Safi, Moataz Saleh, Maha Saad and Peter Doyle.
In May of 2007 I became the 1st Egyptian and youngest Arab to successfully climb Mount Everest. If it was not for the support of my sponsors and their belief in me, this dream would have never come true. Special thanks to Eng. Naguib Sawiris, Sabrine El Hossamy, Nagwa Shoeib and the late Maged Gobran.
OTV produced a 42-min documentary of my Everest expedition using the footage I shot on the mountain. It aired in 2008 for the first time.
