Farida Osman Breaks Pro Swim Series Record

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.

The African Cup of Nations Full Draw

Published

By

The Africa Cup of Nations draw took place yesterday night, and the set of groups are shockingly and luckily in our favor, but Egypt will still take nothing for granted.

The draw was held with the spectacular view of the Pyramids, which made quite the nicest background, they were beautifully illuminated, and under the gaze of the Sphinx, the draw was concluded with the following list.

Hosts Egypt will face DR Congo, Uganda and Zimbabwe in Group A.

Defending champions Cameroon are in Group F with Ghana, Benin and Guinea-Bissau.

Full Draw:

The tournament will take place from 21 June till 19 July, which means Europe-based players will not be missing their club games.

The first game of the tournament will be Egypt against Zimbabwe on 21 June at Cairo Stadium, and seeing that the games aren’t to overlap with European tournaments, it is expected that Mo Salah will play among the national team.

So far, this tournament is considered to be the biggest AfCON, with 24 teams, and the first to be held in Europe’s summer rather than January or February.

Egypt’s assistant coach, Hany Ramzy, said after the draw that the Pharaohs were “comfortable” with their pool.

“We are confident, we are here in our land with the supporters behind us, so we have to work hard to reach the final.”

Comments on the draws from several coaches were as follow:

“It is a difficult group but we are used to this level of competition. The teams know one another very well.”
Morocco coach Herve Renard.

“I don’t think the group is easy especially Guinea. They are very young and we have to be wary. We also have a young team but we have experience as well.”
Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr.

“All the groups are difficult. We have two months to prepare well and we will try to make through the group to the next round. We defeated Egypt before in Kampala 1-0 and I am happy that we will play then in Egypt.”
Uganda coach Sebastien Desabre

“The draw determines the teams you face but we actually have to be good on the pitch during the games to qualify to the next round”
Tunisia coach Alain Giresse

Mohamed Salah faces an act of racism during Liverpool’s 1-1 draw against West Ham United in London at the Premier League.

A video was posted on West Ham fan’s Twitter account, containing insults regarding the religious background of our beloved football player, the video went viral leading West Ham to take an action towards identifying the person involved.

A spokesman from West Ham United, expressed their keen on taking such an issue very seriously, saying that “At West Ham United, we have a zero tolerance policy to any form of violent or abusive behavior.”

In another statement, the London police said: “We are aware of a video in which it appears racial abuse is being directed at a player at a West Ham vs Liverpool game. No arrests have been made and enquiries continue.”

It is just sad to see that there are still people who judge others based on a race or religion, with disregard to their achievements. All we hope for now, is for West Ham United to take a serious action against this individual; in order to set an example for others.
