Egyptian wrestler Karam Gaber (Greco-Roman and freestyle wrestling), champion of the Athens Olympics, will not perform at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, reports Ahram Online.
Court of arbitration for sport in Lausanne has upheld the two-year ban for violating anti-doping rules. The Egyptian was disqualified in August 2015.
Karam Gaber is the champion of the Athens Olympic games in Greco-Roman wrestling (weight category up to 96 kg) and silver medalist at the London Olympics, two-time silver medalist at the world Championships, seven-time champion of Africa.
He is the bronze medalist at the 1998 world Cup on free-style wrestling.
