Kadar said his brother called home about an hour after the race.
“He said he’s very happy with the race and the result. He wanted to let us know he wasn’t disappointed with the result,” Kadar said.
He said Mohammed spoke with his father, Said Yusuf, and with little brother Hamza, who is 13.
“He told my little brother he might come visit us” before he heads back to the University of Wisconsin to continue his studies and his training.
“We are happy for him,” Kadar said. “This was a good experience for him and for us, and we are awaiting his return (to the Olympics) in 2016.”
