It is not clear whether it was Act for Lebanon who chose to support the achiever in Nael, or Nael who chose to be an active member in Act for Lebanon.

Passionate for wheelchair racing, Nael started as an amateur athlete in the Terry Fox Run (10 km for cancer) in the year 2000.

6 years after his car accident, Nael, now 28, is just back from the Japan Marathon after burning the track of the Beirut International Marathon (October 2004), New York City Marathon (November 2004), Paris Marathon (April 2005) and the Switzerland Oesingen Marathon (May 2005).

Nael’s achievements have sprung from his courage, perseverance and self-confidence. An activist within the disabled community in Lebanon and the International Disabled Athletic Community; Nael is a co-organizer in the Beirut International Marathon.
