Jamil El Reedy

Olympic athlete

Jamil Omar Hatem Abdulalem Jamil El Reedy, born October 22, 1965 in Cairo, is a retired Egyptian alpine skier. He was Egypt's sole representative at the 1984 Winter Olympics in Sarajevo. As such, he attracted lasting media attention, particularly when it was reported that he had "prepared by spending 40 days in a cave in the Egyptian desert". He finished 60th out of 60 in the downhill event, 46th out of 47 in the slalom, and did not complete the giant slalom, thus being eliminated.  ( Wikipedia article )
