Our Champion for Peace

Nouria Benida-Merah

Sport is peace : we respect the same rules no matter where we come from and once we have crossed the finish line, our opponents become friends for life.


Olympic Champion of the 1,500m in the Sydney Games in 2000, Nouri fights on a daily basis for the rights of women in her country and serves on the Algerian National Olympic and Sports Committee. She is the ambassador for an all-women’s race in Alger and she’s also a member of the Algerian Olympic Committee.
