Shady El Nahas Scores a Fourth Medal for Canada

Communiqué

Montreal, October 25, 2020 – Shady El Nahas, the final Canadian to compete at the Budapest Grand Slam, ended his day in the Hungarian capital on a high note, claiming the bronze medal in the under-100 kg category on Sunday.

He was the fourth Canadian to be decorated in Hungary after Jessica Klimkait (-57 kg), Antoine Valois-Fortier (-81 kg) and Arthur Margelidon (-73 kg) won gold, silver and bronze, respectively.

“I’m really happy with my performance today,” stated El Nahas, who is ranked seventh in the world in his weight division. “For the first time, I felt as strong, if not stronger, as the world champion and other athletes. I wanted to use this competition to assess where I stood, and I’m really proud of how I did today.” 

El Nahas won his first two matches by ippon against Hungary’s Zsombor Veg and Egypt’s Ramadan Darwish. After his quarter-final loss to Russia’s Arman Adamian, who later snagged the silver medal, he moved on to the repechage, where he quickly disposed of Hungary’s Miklos Cirjenics by ippon. In his final bout, he overpowered Toma Nikiforov of Belgium by waza-ari to secure his spot on the third step of the podium.
