We’re hosting the Junior Track World Championship this week

The two stories leading the conversation on the nation’s airwaves last night: The 2021 International Cycling Union (UCI) Junior Track Cycling World Championship, which is being staged in Cairo for the first time from 1 to 5 September, and the signing of a USD 4.5 bn contract between state-owned National Authority for Tunnels (NAT) and a consortium including Siemens Mobility, Orascom Construction and Arab Contractors for the construction of the first phase of Egypt’s first high-speed rail line, which will connect the Red Sea and the Mediterranean. We have coverage of the latter in the news well, above.

For your viewing pleasure: Masaa DMC (watch, runtime: 18:25) and Al Hayah Al Youm (watch, runtime: 15:54) had coverage of the opening ceremony of the UCI’s Junior Track Cycling World Championship, while MBC Masr’s Sherif Amer (watch, runtime: 1:57) took note of yesterday’s transport agreement.
