CAIRO - 17 December 2019: The Egyptian wushu kung fu Federation said that it would move on all axes to find a solution for the decision issued by the game's international federation to withdraw the gold medal from Egyptian player Mahmoud Atef.

The International Wushu Federation (IWUF) decided to withdraw the gold medal from the Egyptian player after being subjected to doping tests.

In a statement, the Egyptian federation said it received the notification of the positive sample on December 10, five days after the date of the IWUF's interim decision.

Mahmoud Atef had claimed the 2019 World Wushu Championships title.
