Egyptian boxers aim for first Olympic medal in almost two decades

These boxers are confident they will bring home gold medals

in the upcoming Tokyo Olympics

Location: Cairo, Egypt

(SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) EGYPTIAN BOXER, YOUSRY REZK, SAYING:"So we were part of a training camp here at the Olympic Center and then we travelled to Lithuania to participate in an international competition where myself and Abdelrahman Orabi won two gold medals. We attended another training camp in Spain for around 21 days and came back here to the Olympic Center where we will stay until this Friday then we will be travelling to Tokyo."

A win for either would be the first in over 15 years

for Egypt at an Olympic boxing event
