CAMEL RACING BACK ON IN EGYPT POST COVID-19 LOCKDOWN HIATUS

Hooves thundering against the sands of the vast Tih plateau in the Sinai desert, Egypt as more than 500 mechanical jockey-clad and jersey-wearing camels completing a 2 km race were vibrantly cheered on by their traditionally clad spectators in jalabiyas and headdresses riding alongside the sporting event n SUVs — and thrilled to be able to once again partake in this cherished cultural heritage after a 6-month hiatus in light of the covid-19 pandemic.

The competition “is training for the international race, which should take place in October in Sharm el-Sheikh,” Saleh al-Muzaini, head of the Nuweiba camel club.
