Mosaad Elaiuty crafts champions on and off the court

In sitting volleyball’s colourful world, where skill, strategy and sheer resilience converge, one of the tacticians that resonates profoundly is Dr. Mosaad Elaiuty.

With his years of experience and passion for the discipline, he has not only steered Egypt to Paralympic success but is now weaving his magic with the men’s and women’s teams of Rwanda.

“I joined many tournaments, from World Championships to African Championships and Paralympic Games with the Egyptian team, gathering invaluable experience” he recounted.

Now, in Rwanda, the Egyptian coach is embarking on a mission to usher both the men’s and women’s team into a new level of excellence. Drawing from his rich reservoir of knowledge and techniques from around the globe, he crafted the programme’s roadmap for success.
