Mohamed Hashem Becomes Only Second Egyptian to Win European Handball Champions League

Hashem certainly earned his winner's medal in what was a historic all-French final.

Move over Mo and make room for an Egyptian who has actually won the champions league. Too soon? Well it's the truth. You see, Egyptian handball player, Mohamed Mamdouh Hashem, became only the second Egyptian player to win the European Handball Federation Champions League title this week, scoring five goals for his team, Montpellier, in a hotly-contested all-French final against HBC Nantes.

Hashem joins a very exclusive list of Egyptian players to have one the most prized trophy in European club handball, after Hussein Zaky won the title with Spanish team, Ciudad Real, in 2005. The win was quite the achievement for Montpellier, too; not only is this their second ever EHF Champions League title and their first in 15 years, but they're also the only French team to have one the title in its modern format.

Hashem, a forward, is currently on loan from French club AIX and is expected to be a part of the Egyptian national team at the 2019 World Cup after coming in second place in the African Handball Championship.
