Karim Abdel Gawad celebrates beating Mohamed ElShorbagy in the 2016 Qatar Classic final

Road2Dubai Update: Gawad Takes Lead on PSA Road to Dubai Standings


World Champion Karim Abdel Gawad has overtaken World No.1 Mohamed ElShorbagy at the summit of the 2016/17 PSA Road to Dubai Standings after he defeated his fellow Egyptian in the final of the Qatar Classic – the third stage on the Road to Dubai – last week.

Gawad, the World No.3 from Giza, has been in sublime form so far this season, reaching a maiden World Series final at the Cathay Pacific Sun Hung Kai Financial Hong Kong Open in August, before triumphing over ElShorbagy in Doha to take the maximum 100 points available – just two weeks after lifting the PSA Men’s World Championship title.
