Once again, our own Olympian Farida Osman succeeded in winning the gold medal at the American Open Swimming Championship in the 50-meter freestyle at a time of 10.25. Such a historic achievement for the Egyptian young swimmer who managed to claim victory during a pandemic and a global crisis.
The U.S. Open Championships are being held across nine different cities, and it’s the first major U.S. swimming event since March.
Looks like yesterday was a prideful day for Egypt as swimmer Marwan El Kamash also succeeded in qualifying for the 2021 Tokyo Olympics after breaking the qualifying record for the 800-meter freestyle race and winning first place in the US Open Swimming Championships.
Ashraf Sobhy, Minister of Youth and Sports, congratulated both champions for their wonderful achievements that brought joy to all of us.
The Minister of Youth and Sports showed tremendous support and is encouraging everyone to take his lead and support the sports federations, along with both male and female players.
We offer both swimmers our warm congratulations for making us all very proud.
