Egyptian-American swimming prodigy, Farida Osman, made history on Friday by becoming the first Arab woman to reach a final of the World Championship. Breaking records is slowly becoming the norm for Osman - this is not her first moment of glory.
The 18 year old also set a new record back in 2011 at the World Junior Championships in Lima at the tender age of 16. Osman’s next adventure will come at the University at Berkeley, California where she will be furthering her swimming career under the tutelage of the infamous Olympic swimming coach, Terri McKeever .
On behalf of CG, we’re proud of you, Farida – go get ‘em tiger!
