The Egyptian team included 46 sportspeople, 10 women and 36 men. This was 2 fewer women than the country had sent to Sydney for the 2000 Games.[1][2] Three members of the delegation, including two athletes, participated in a study about dental health during the Games.[3]

Medals[edit]

Competitors from Egypt won 23 medals, including 6 gold, 9 silver and 8 bronze to finish 23rd in the medal table.[4][5]

Fatma Omar made her second Paralympic Games appearance in Athens, winning her second gold medal in powerlifting at the Games.[6] This time, she competed in a heavier weight class, -56kg.[7] Metwalli Mathana appeared in his third Paralympic Games.[6] Osama Elserngawy won gold in the Men's 52kg event.[7] Metwaly Ibrahim Mathana set a Paralympic record at the 2004 Games with a lift of 202.5 kg in the 60 kg class. This was more than the world record for the standing class, which at the time was 190 kg.[8]

Egypt finished the Athens Games with 5 gold, 6 silver and 4 bronze medals in powerlifting.[9]
