Damascus-based Sabraa Kaiek has got excellent connections to the sport and his genetics were enough strong to catch the first title of the Syrian Schoolboys National Championships where he eliminated Army’s Hatem Hatem in the final of the 35kg. Latakia’s first gold medal was captured by Al-Hassan Kadous who defeated Houssen Dayoub in a one-sided final at the 37kg weight class.
Latakia’s Mohamed Badour continued their team’s excellent performance and defeated Qunaitra’s Teim Soulaiman in the third final of the competition. Latakia’s third-in-a-row gold medal was achieved by Ammar Rababie who was too smart for Qunaitra’s Hamza Shadoud in the final of the 43kg division.
The first boxer from Tartous who claimed gold medal in the national event was Yousef Nissani at the 46kg after beating Aleppo’s Mohamed Nakrish. Al Hasakie’s first gold medal was achieved by Mohamed Haj Ali at the 49kg category where he was slightly better than Damascus City’s Mohamed Omar.
Aleppo’s bets talent in this age group Ali Haloum amazed the judges and the crowd with his strong skills and defeated Homs’ Diyaia Al-Ali in Tartous. Army Boxing Club’s Haidar Hattem claimed the next gold medal in the event and did not give any chance to Latakia’s Ward Al-Sheikh in the final of the Nationals.
Tartous’ next big success was achieved by Mohamed Abass who had to do his very best to beat Aleppo’s Ahmad Moner Al-Jafaa in the next final. Tartous’ Zein Assa was also better than Damascus’ Emad Aldin Nabaa in the final of the 61kg weight class. Tartous’ fourth gold medal was captured by Zein Mohamed following his excellent combinations against Hama’s Talal Azank in the final of the 64kg.
Hama’s lone title in the event was earned by Haidar Younies after his success over Latakia’s Jad Asaad at the 67kg. Damascus’ Hassan Khandour had clear dominancy over Hama’s Osama Al-Taieb in the final of the 70kg.
