QNET, a leading international direct selling company, expressed its happiness and pride for Hadia Hosny, one of QNET’s Independent Representatives in Egypt, who will represent Egypt in the London Olympics 2012 in badminton.
Hosny, an inspirational 23 year old athlete, made history when she competed in the Beijing Olympics in badminton in 2008 and was able to secure a spot in the highly anticipated London Olympics, taking place over the next couple of weeks.
The motivated and multi-talented young woman who is currently pursuing her Masters degree in Medical Biosciences at the University of Bath in the UK, where she also dedicates a lot of her time to training under the supervision of the best international badminton coaches, said of this momentous opportunity, “I have arrived in the Olympic village and it's getting to be real, I am excited more second after second, and am really lucky and happy to have my QNET family supporting me.”
Hosny expressed her delight in qualifying for the London Olympics 2012, which was achieved through hard work, in collaboration with the Egyptian Federation of Badminton, promising to accomplish new achievements and raise Egypt’s status in the international sports arena.
Mr JR Mayer, Managing Director of QNET, said of the company’s support for Hosney “QNET are thrilled for Hadia that she qualified for the London 2012 Olympics to represent Egypt. This is such an amazing achievement and we’re very proud to be associated with Hadia as part of the QNET family.
