The delegation was formed of the President of the Lebanese Olympic Committee, Dr. Pierre Galakh, its Secretary-General Hassan Rostom, and the head of the delegation, Eng. Mazen Ramadan, presented the audience, along with three of the six Lebanese athletes who qualified for the Tokyo Olympics: Ray Bassil (shooting), Noureddine Hadid (track and field athletics) and Gabriella Douaihy (swimming).

Galakh considered that “the goal is not only to win a medal, but to show the best image of Lebanon, and to benefit from the Tokyo Olympics in achieving equal representation between the sexes in order to promote equality.”
