Despite the opposition of friends and family, she chose the bodybuilding for self-defence and keeping slim originally. With her effort for two years, Kholoud has become a fitness coach and achieved some fame in the circle of bodybuilding. In the future, Kholoud intends to challenge the championship of an international strong power competition, “I’m the iron woman of Egypt”, as she called herself. (Xinhua/Ahmed Gomaa)
