23:20 This means that Egypt finishes the Rio Olympic Games with three bronze medals, two in weightlifting and one in taekwondo. 

23:15 The Geziry brothers fail to finish among the top three after poor displays in the combined running/shooting event, with Omar El-Geziry finishing  23rd with a total of 1403 points and Amr El-Geziry finishing 27th with a total of 1393 points. 

23:00 The combined running-shooting contest gets underway.

14:00 Egypt has so far won three bronze medals at the Rio Games, two in weightlifting and one in taekwondo

13:45 Wrestlers Zaghloul and Kamal can take heart from the surprising run to the semis of Inas Mostafa, who eventually lost twice to miss out on the chance of at least winning a bronze medal in the women's 69kg category on Wednesday

13:20 His brother, Amr, could only collect 208 points, finishing 18th in the fencing ranking round, but he has a chance to redeem himself. 

13:00 Omar El-Geziry finished third in the men's fencing ranking round with 238 points but he still has to excel in the fencing bonus round, swimming, riding show jumping and combined running/shooting if he is to compete for a medal.

11:05 Zaghloul will face Pedro Ceballos Fuentos of Colombia at 14:50 Cairo time (GMT+2) in the qualifying round of Wrestling Freestyle 86 kg Men, while Kamal will play with Tunisia’s Radhouane Chebbi in the 125 kg Men event at 14:40
