Omar Nour is the first Egyptian professional triathlete in history. He represents his country in the Olympic triathlon circuit and is the fastest Arabic-speaking triathlete in the world.
At the age of 29, he weighed in at 105 kg – after ripping his suit pants (twice!), he turned his life around by signing up for this first ever triathlon. Just two short years later, Nour earned his pro-card and started his professional triathlon career at age 31.
Although Nour’s results as an athlete have elevated his profile, his approachable, lighthearted, “larger than life” personality is what makes him a crowd favorite.
Nour has successfully launched his own brand “o.n.” which is synonymous to healthy living and lifestyle, and is an active motivational speaker – passionate about educating and motivating adults and children alike to pursue their dreams.
Nour is an avid entrepreneur having started numerous companies with his younger brother. Most recently the duo has successfully launched Enduro Supply – a sports goods distribution company, and Ventum – the fastest time trial bicycle in the world.
Nour has a triple major and pre-med degree from The John Hopkins University, and speaks Arabic, French, English and German.

Introducing my team mate, THE @omarsamra! Omar is just a regular kinda guy. If you can call climbing Mount Everest, completing the 7-Summits and skiing the North and South Pole the kind of thing a 'regular kinda guy' does. 😜 But most importantly, he's been a great friend to me since I met him back in 2013. So when he approached me last year with a crazy challenge, I just couldn't say no! Any ideas what we'll be doing?? #TeamO2 #itsbeginning #ihopewedontkilleachother
