Edward Maalouf

Did you know that Lebanon won 2 Bronze medals at the Paralympic Games in Beijing? Did you know that both medals were won by the same person (Edward Maalouf) ? Did you know that he received very little support from Lebanese Authorities (Plane ticket + Tracksuit) ? Did you know that he did not receive official recognition other than congratulations from the Lebanese ambassador to China? Did you know that he will compete in this year’s Paralymics as well? Did you know that he is sponsored by the British Embassy in Beirut only? I’ll leave you to be the judge.

    so what? What’s the whole fuss about it?

    The Lebanese government doesn’t care about any of its other citizens… I don’t see why this story is getting attention, he’s another Lebanese guy!
