The army’s Talaea El Geish club sponsors Aswan marathon sensation Marwa

This 11-year-old Aswan marathon runner is our tear-jerker moment of the week: 11-year-old Aswan street vendor Marwa Hassan won over hearts all over the nation after grabbing first place in The TriFactory’s children’s marathon for the Aswan Heart Center, Al Arabiya reports. Marwa did not have the EGP 200 fee required to participate, or any running shoes or attire, but the organizers allowed her to participate. She ran barefoot and finished first. The Armed Forces’ Talaea El Geish Sporting Club has announced it would sponsor the young Olympian.
