Two-time world silver medallist Mohamed Ali Rashwan exuded judo’s core values of honour, respect and integrity.
In the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic openweight final the Egyptian famously avoided targeting the injured right calf of his opponent Yasuhiro Yamashita and had to settle for silver. Ali Rashwan won an international fair play award for his conduct and the everlasting respect of his compatriots and the Japanese fans.
