After his fine performance in Day 1 of the men's Jumping event, Equestrian Karim El-Zoghby will be looking to maintain his rhythm in Day 2 on Tuesday.

He finished the first day of the qualifiers without a single penalty and qualified for the next round among the top performers. He will be eyeing for a similar performance on Tuesday that would put him in a fine position for Day 3, which will take place on Wednesday.

Also on Tuesday, wrestlers Adham Saleh (66 Kg) and Hamdy Abdel-Wahab (96kg) will open their campaign. Saleh will face Armenian wrestler Migran Arutyunyan while Abdel-Wahab will have an easy test against Alin Alexuc Ciurariu of Romania.  

Swimmer Marwan El-Amrawy and Weightlifter Ahmed Abdel-Wahab will start their missions in the 10km Marathon and the 105kg weightlifting categories respectively.
