CAIRO- 11 September 2017: Female athletes often face challenges globally, specifically in the Middle East. To some, support is a birth right, but to some others support is often hard to come by, and is carved through a lot of hard work.
Alexandrian Suzan Gaber is a 27-year-old trap shooter committed to spreading positive vibes. In addition to being a one-of-a-kind champion, she also has a Master’s degree.

“It's always a surprise to people that I am a shooter and that I excel in this field. Support from the media and federation should be far greater than it is now,” Gaber told Egypt Today.
For some, she is a teacher who helps them better understand the curriculum. For others, she is an example to follow in achieving sports goals.
Although Gaber has always enjoyed sports, the shooting hobby came late into her life. She instantly excelled at it, even far more than her male peers.

With not a single championship missed without a medal, she fluctuated between gold and silver awards. She holds the first place in Egypt and in Africa. Her achievements include first place in the African Championship 2017, first place in the Arab Championship 2016, and third place team in the World Championship Bird 2017.

It is never too hard to maintain a good balance in your life if you know how to commit with the right attitude. Gaber was once only one target away from making it to the Olympic Games, and now she has her eyes on Tokyo 2020.
We wish her the best!
