By United World Wrestling Press

CORSIER-SUR-VEVEY, Suisse (le 24 janvier) -- La semaine dernière, le programme de master 'Les femmes en tête' a célébré sa remise des diplômes à une nouvelle génération de femmes dirigeantes du monde de la lutte.

L'experte mondialement reconnue Gabriela Mueller pilotait ce cours de plus de 40 participants - dont 95% de femmes - venus des cinq continents.

Les objectifs du programme de master 'Les femmes en tête' étaient d'autonomiser les participants pour la construction du futur de la lutte en tant que sport global, d'accroître le vivier de talents de l'UWW à tous les niveaux et d'assimiler des stratégies, des techniques et des méthodes de drection applicables et effectives fonctionnant aujourd'hui.

“En dépit des changements dus à l'épidémie de covid-19, nous sommes parvenus à organiser un autre programme virtuel de leadership et faire avancer l'égalité des sexes dans notre discipline. Dans notre plan stratégique 2022-2026, nous espérons voir plus de femmes, et d'hommes, des générations futures dans des fonctions de direction,” a déclaré Mme Deqa Niamkey, Directrice du Développement chez UWW.

Les participants, à travers des sessions et discussions de groupe interactives, ont appris de précieuses tactiques de communication qui leur donneront force de persuasion en négociation. Ils ont également appris comment contruire leur force et influence personnelle et comment les utiliser pour persuader les électeurs et les preneurs de décision.

“United World Wrestling et le leadership de Deqa Niamkey, une fois encore, modèlent ce que font les dirigeants : autonomiser de nouveaux dirigeants qui eux-mêmes autonomiseront plus de dirigeants,” a commenté Gabriella Mueller ; "à l'équipe, à chaque participant qui peut maintenant fièrement se présenter comme diplômé du cours et amplifier son incidence."

EL JADIDA, Maroc (22 mai) -- Pour la deuxième journée consécutive, l'Égypte et l'Algérie se sont livrées à une course passionnante pour le titre par équipe aux Championnats d'Afrique.

L'Egypte, après avoir remporté le titre par équipe en gréco-romaine samedi par un point, a devancé l'Algérie pour le titre par équipe en libre, alors que les championnats continentaux se terminaient à El Jadida.

L'Égypte a terminé avec 195 points pour prendre la tête du classement, tandis que l'Algérie a obtenu 178 points. L'Afrique du Sud a terminé avec 93 points pour prendre la troisième place.

Les deux nations étaient à égalité pour les médailles d'or (4), mais les lutteurs égyptiens ont atteint les médailles dans les 10 catégories de poids, tandis que l'Algérie a terminé la compétition en 57 kg et n'a pas pu entrer en 125 kg, ce qui lui a fait le plus mal.

In a crucial gold medal bout, Mostafa ELDERS (EGY) defeated U20 world bronze medalist Nicolaas DE LANGE (RSA) 7-0 at 97kg despite starting as the underdog.

De Lange was expected to win his first gold at African Championships but Elders had different ideas. He began with a quick takedown and roll to lead 4-0. De Lange went for Elders' leg on multiple occasions but could not finish a single move. The Egypt wrestler led 5-0 at the break.

Elders shifted to defense in the second period and De Lange found it extremely difficult to score. He was for fleeing during a stepout which gave a tiring Elders two more points. He managed to play out the remaining time on the clock to seal the team title for Egypt.

In another high-stake final, Tokyo Olympian Amr Reda RAMADAN (EGY) clinched his second African title by winning the gold medal at 74kg. In a bout he was expected to win comfortably, Ramadan trailed junior African champion Adelkader IKKAL (ALG) 5-1 after two minutes. 

Ikkal tried to shoot for Ramadan's legs numerous times in the second period but ended up giving up points which proved to be his undoing. Ramadan scored eight straight points on counters to win 9-5.

At 125kg, Youssif HEMIDA (EGY) made a mockery of his competition in the nordic bracket. With only three wrestlers entered, Hemida scored 11-0 wins over Anas LAMKABBER (MAR) and Hamza RAHMANI (TUN) to clinch the gold medal.

The former U23 World silver medalist, who trains in the USA, showed the gulf in the class in wrestling as Lamkabber and Rahmani looked out of sorts on the mat.

The fourth gold for Egypt came at 57kg as Gamal MOHAMED (EGY) held off Ebikewenimo WELSON (NGR), 5-0 in the final. In a controlled bout, Mohamed got the first point for Welson's passivity to lead 1-0 at the break.

He scored a takedown in the second period and wait for the clock to expire while fending off Welson's attacks. He got another takedown at the end off a desperate attack by Welson.

For Algeria, Tokyo Olympian Fateh BENFERDJALLAH (ALG) won his first senior African gold medal with a 6-2 win over Mahmoud BADAWI (EGY). He scored all of his six points in the first period while giving up two in the second.

The 21-year-old continues to improve at the senior level after qualifying Algeria for the Tokyo Olympics last year. The top seed in El Jadida began the tournament with an 11-0 win before pinning Edward LESSING (RSA) in the semifinal.

Another Olympian who won the gold for Algeria was Mohammed FARDJ (ALG). Unlike Benferdjallah, Fardj displayed a dominating performance in the 92kg final against Imed KADDIDI (TUN). He won 11-0 to defend his title.

He outscored his opponents 34-0 over three bouts in what was a stunning performance throughout the day.

The fourth gold medal for Algeria was won by Chems FETAIRIA (ALG) who defeated Youssef AIT BOULAHRI (MAR), 13-3 in the 79kg final to win his first African title.

A trip and gut wrench gave Fetairia four points but Boulahri also got two for holding Fetairia in danger in the same sequence as the score read 4-3. But Fetairia launched a suplex in the first period for four before a match ending four-pointer in the second period.

79kg was also the weight where Mauritius won their first freestyle medal in 20 years. Jean STE MARIE (MRI), who lost to Boulahri 14-12 in the semifinal, defeated Donald MABUSELA (RSA), 12-2 in the bronze medal bout to end his country's 22-year wait for a freestyle medal.

The remaining two gold medals were captured by Guinea-Bissau as Mbunde CUMBA MBALI (GBS) claimed the 65kg title while Bacar NDUM (GBS) won the gold at 70kg by defeated Algerian opponents.

In the 65kg final, defending champion Cumba Mbali scored three points in the first period against Chouaib SAHRAOUI (ALG) and went into a shell. He was warned for passivity but that only cost him one point. He hung on for a 3-1 win and his third straight African Championships title.

Ndum was more dominant as he defeated Rami BRINIS (ALG), 9-0 in the 70kg final to become a first-time African champion.

Ndum's run in El Jadida included two technical superiority wins in the quarterfinal and semifinal before he maintained the clean slate in the final as well.

Another star from the country, Tokyo Olympian Diamantino IUNA FAFE (GBS) suffered a heartbreaking 2-1 loss to Welson in the 57kg semifinal. But he bounced back to claim the bronze medal with a 10-0 win over Rabby KILANDI (COD).
