During the World Aquatics Championship held in Doha, Qatar, in the period from February 2 to 18, the Egyptian Swimmer and Diver Maha Amer claimed Egypt’s first bronze medal in the competition.
The athlete did a 1-meter springboard dive that was followed by applause from the Egyptian group. On the screen airing the championship, Amer’s name came third after Australian Alysha Koloi and English Grace Reid.
The 24-year-old Amer has 17 years’ worth of constant training and accomplishments in diving. Her latest bronze is only one inevitable step in her ever-bettering career.
Amer has got herself a place at the upcoming Paris Olympics that’ll be held next Summer. She has also clinched a gold medal at the Africa Continental Championships, and during her college years in the United States, she received the All-America award twice.
Early in one of her first tournaments, Amer ranked 28th at the Rio Games, where she was the youngest woman to participate in a 3-meter springboard, an early participation that paved the way for years of achievements.
The Egyptian champion was quoted by Africa Aquatics on February 3rd following her triumph, saying, “This moment means everything to me. It’s a dream come true to not only represent Egypt on this prestigious stage but also to make history for my country in the sport of diving.”
