After being previously denied entry to the United States, the Lebanese athlete Noureddine Hadid has now officially received an entry visa to compete in the World Athletics Championships Oregon 2022, which will be held from July 15 until July 24.

Previously, the news of his visa rejection was shared by AFP’s sports journalist, Rayane Moussallem, who stated that Hadid was told at the U.S. embassy in Lebanon that he did not provide enough proof in his documents that “he won’t escape there.”

The Lebanese athlete had previously represented Lebanon at the 2022 Tokyo Olympics. He also holds the national records in the 60-meter, 200-meter, and 400-meter indoor track and field.

Hadid also won a bronze medal at the 2021 Arab Athletics Championships held in Tunisia, becoming one of the first Lebanese male sprinters to win one in such a championship.
