Home favourite Ahmed Elgendy won the men’s individual event on the penultimate day of competition at the International Modern Pentathlon Union (UIPM) World Cup in Cairo.
The Egyptian finished with a total of 1,465 points at the Platinum Club, securing his first senior UIPM World Cup title.
Czech Republic’s Jan Kuf ranked second with 1,448 points, while Lithuania’s Justinas Kinderis came third with 1,435.
"I am very happy to win my first senior World Cup in Egypt, especially in Egypt - my home country," Elgendy said.
"The crowd and the audience was always cheering for me in the laser run and the fencing, and I’m very happy to be competing in Egypt."
The 19-year-old added: "It’s my first season really competing in the seniors.
"In 2018, I participated in three World Cups and the World Cup Final but it was only to get experience for the Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires.
"This year I am hoping to win more than one World Cup and qualify for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, which is my dream."
Tomorrow's mixed relay will bring down the curtain on proceedings in Cairo.
Egypt's capital is hosting the first UIPM World Cup of the season.
