Mohamed Traboulsi

One of the greatest Lebanese athlete but he was ignored by his own country. If he was a Canadian he wouldn't have to leave searching dignity outside his homeland. May ALLAH reward you Mohammad Kheir

No, he set the junior world record of Middleweight in 1969 with 140kg, very great lift, equal to the junior light heavyweight record, then disappeared until the olympics of 1972. Quite tall for 75kg, 167cm, he could not do more without passing to the superior class.

I'm sure he broke the snatch world record at least once (150kg). A good friend and a great lifter, may he rest in peace.

I am sorry to hear about his early death He is the only olympic medal winner in the history of Lebanon When he came back to his country and the PM (Saeb Salam then) asked him if wishes anything he said that he wishes a employment in the fire brigade ! That was granted ! What a humility in this great athele and what an incentive for the other lebaneese athletes ! In France some are offered ministerial jobs !

He was one of the top athletes of his time. I remeber watching his lifting those heavy weights in each of the olympic games he participated in. I wish him good life and health. Haven't heard about his whereabouts for a while. God bless you Mohammad.
