Bashir Yusuf Mohamed was a very talented player in the Somali National basketball team late in 1970s and in mid 1980s. Rather than playing basketball in 1981 Mr. Bashiir became a physical education lecturer at Somalia's Lafole University where he was teaching until Somalia fell into anarchy in January 1991.

The several times gold medalist has for the past several years been serving as the assistant coach of Qatar national basketball team.
