A group of Egyptian women gather at an abandoned park in a Cairo suburb once a week, climbing walls and jumping around in the strenuous physical discipline known as Parkour, while also challenging the country’s conservative social norms. Guided by coach Mohamed Omran, they have trained every week for the past six months with the eventual aim of forming the first professional Parkour team in Egypt. Parkour Egypt, a group that comprises men and women, has grown exponentially after starting off with a handful of players. | © Thomson Reuters 2018 All rights reserved
