The United States Sports Academy is mourning the loss of longtime administrator and friend Dr. Nabil Elattar, who passed away recently at age 84.

Elattar played a significant role in the marketing and program administration of the Academy’s sport education programs in the Middle East. Elattar worked for the institution in an administrative role in Saudi Arabia for more than a decade playing an important role in client relations and public relations. Elattar also worked throughout the Arabian Gulf region and with his knowledge of Arabian culture, played an important role in implementing the Academy’s sports and physical fitness programs in the countries in which the Academy worked.

Elattar will be fondly remembered and missed by everyone at the Academy.
