What Sports are Played in Egypt?

The Egyptian population, like many other Arab/Middle Eastern populations, love to play football (or soccer, as Americans term it). However, although football is a highly popular game (and probably the one most people watch in the international arena), other sports ranging from badminton to motorsports are also played in Egypt. Apparently, their sporty nature is linked to their Ancient Egyptian heritage, where markings on the pyramid show sports such as wrestling, marathon running, and swimming.
