Description or Abstract
This audio documentary is about the struggles players of obscure sports face in Egypt. It was produced as a final project for the Audio Production course at the American University in Cairo. The documentary briefly highlights how and why many athletes in Egypt are finding it tough to excel in the sports they are passionate about, and how football’s prevalent popularity is a reason they do not get the recognition they deserve.
