3 March - Sportsmen's Day in Egypt
Egypt is often described as a sportsman's paradise. The word sport has a modern ring about it but, like most human activities, it is as old as humanity itself. Pharaohs such as Amenhotep II and Thutmose IV were not only patrons but also skilled sportsmen themselves. Unlike ancient Romans, the Egyptians practiced "peaceful" sports aimed at enhancing their fitness and athletic prowess and at providing entertainment.
Egypt Sportsmen's Day that annually falls on March 3 is not a public holiday in Egypt, but it's celebrated by the sportsmen and sports enthusiast. Sports and athletics are much in honour in present-day Egypt. In Olympic Games of recent years Egyptian teams have scored many remarkable successes, notably in swimming and fencing. In this connection it may be mentioned that the feat of swimming the English Channel was performed by an Egyptian as long ago as 1923.
