Leading up to the 2024 Olympic Games, Frontkick will provide you with stories of some of Sweden’s finest combat sports athletes competing in Paris. Let’s take a closer look at Nebil Ibrahim, who will participate in his first Olympics.

The 23-year-old Swedish boxer Nebil Ibrahim is set to make his Olympic debut in Paris. He has been working towards the 2024 summer Olympics since he was 12 years old.

“My goal is to win the medal. This is my first Olympics and I want to win that medal on my first try. I think I can do it,” Ibrahim tells Frontkick.

“This can be a historic Olympics for Swedish boxing to be honest. That’s my feeling. You’re never going to say too much but I have that feeling. Me, Agnes Alexiusson and the coaches are positive.”

How will you prepare in the upcoming weeks?

“I will barely be in Sweden actually. I will go to England, Germany, and maybe Italy for camps. I live in a bubble. Total tunnel vision,” Ibrahim laughs.

“It’s pretty intense. I train two-three times a day. I try to maintain my strength, speed and explosivity. I also work on details in my boxing. Find the details and get a good feeling.”

Nebil Ibrahim: “Just let them come”

The young Swede is one of 18 fighters to compete in the stacked 57 kilo weight class. After camps and competitions all over the world, the tactical and smart boxer is confident in his preparations ahead of the games.

“Just let them come. I’ve seen most of them, fought and won against some. I’ve got a plan for all of them. I’m looking forward to it and if I perform as I should I will get great results for sure. Let’s go!”
