Lebanese Paralympian Arz Zahreddine scored an incredible result by clinching the Gold Medal for the 200m at the 2023 Kinshasa “Jeux de la Francophonie”. Lebanon is taking part in the 2023 Francophonie Games with over 50 athletes, including three Paralymipians: Mahdi Chaito, Hussein Khalil and Arz Zahreddine.

In 2019, Zahreddine claimed two medals including the gold in 200m T64 event at the Grosseto 2019 Grand Prix in Italy. He also finished 8th at the Dubai 2019 World Para Athletics Championships.

Zahreddine is currently the second fastest Paralympic in his category (T64). Best of luck to him and all our athletes!
