After exciting dual matches that reflected advanced individual skills in local basketball, Ahmed El Sabbagh from Alexandria managed to win the title of "Red Bull King of the Rock”, thus becoming qualified to represent Egypt in the international finals of the competition in San Francisco, USA.

The Egyptian champion's winning came as a coronation for consecutive "one on one" competitions which brought together 32 persons with special individual skills in basketball. Heliopolis Sporting Club in Cairo last Friday was a theatre for dual matches whose players had been qualified from the two qualifiers stages that gathered 64 participants at Cairo Sporting Club and Alexandria Sporting Club.

Special arbitration committee undertook the judgment of the results according to simple rules based on excluding the loser from 5-minute-matches. Some of the penal items had their effect on the result and on maintaining the sporting side of the competition that five errors led to automatically excluding the players from the competition.
