Mada Abdelhamid, Los Angeles
Ever wonder how Khal Drogo from “Game of Thrones” got so big? That’s because Mada Abdelhamid trained him. A personal trainer for actor Jason Momoa, Abdelhamid’s story is almost as fantastical as “Thrones” is: Born in Egypt and fluent in Arabic, he played professional basketball until he fled the country in the midst of the 2011 Egyptian Revolution. WWE Tough Enough is merely the latest chapter in a life well lived. If he makes it through, does a chapter at WrestleMania await?
