Published

on

Our very own pride and joy Farida Osman has made yet another remarkable victory, as she put up a 25.65 to win the 50 meter butterfly on Friday night in Richmond, Virginia; thus breaking the Pro Swim Series record. 

The PSS record in the 50 fly has been Kelsi Dahlia’s since the PSS Mesa last April, and now it belongs to Osman.

Farida Osman was the top seed heading into finals; seeing how she has gone 26.32 in morning heats ahead of TAC Titans teen sensation Claire Curzan (26.37), Mission Viejo’s Amanda Kendall (26.43), and American record-holder Kelsi Dahlia of Cardinal Aquatics (26.59).

Now, Osman, who is representing Pinnacle Racing, held her spot and went another 7/10 faster, thus breaking the meet record (25.74), and defeating Dahlia who held this position since last April 2018 duing the PSS Mesa.

Dahlia came to the wall second in 25.90, followed by Curzan in 26.18.

Golden Girl. Gold Medalist. Record Breaker. Farida Osman.

Egypt’s legendary goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary has broken a new record that landed him in the 2020 Guiness Book of Records for being the oldest player to take part in the World Cup finals.

El-Hadary, as a 46-year-old goalkeeper, is earning his deserved recognition as the oldest player to participate in the World Cup by Guiness Book of Records. 

Despite Egypt’s tragic loss at the FIFA World Cup in Russia last year, the world can’t deny the impressive efforts of El-Hadary during the tournament. The goalkeeper played one game in the last match facing Saudi Arabia, and those 90 minutes were enough to land El-Hadary a place in the 2020 Guinness Book of Records.

The document was signed by IHF president Hassan Mostafa and EHF chief Hesham Nasr, in the presence of Egypt’s Sports Minister Ashraf Sobhy and head of African Handball Confederation Mansourou Aremou at the ceremony.

This marks the second time for Egypt to host such a big event, as last time the championship was held in Egypt was in 1999.

“The participation of 32 teams instead of 24 for the first time in the 2021 world handball championship is a clear challenge,” Sobhy stated.

He also said that this shall prove Egypt’s capability of organizing and hosting international championships and events, after hopefully the tournament concluded successfully.

Also worth mentioning is that Egypt is soon to finish establishing an indoor handball court located at the New Capital to be one of the venues of the championship.
