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.
