Egyptian Swimmer Farida Osman Makes History, Again, in African Games

In sports, there are athletes and then there are legends. Egyptian swimmer Farida Osman falls into the second category. Once again, she conquers the waters and becomes the fastest woman in the history of the African Games.

With a time of 24.72 seconds in the Women’s 50m freestyle event, she claims gold and sets a new African Games record.

Known as Egypt and Africa’s fastest female swimmer, Osman doesn’t shy away from breaking record after record. At the Doha 2024 World Aquatics Championships, she made history by becoming the only swimmer in Egypt, Africa, and the Middle East to ever win three medals in three different world championships, one in 2017, one in 2019, and one in 2024.

“I’m really happy about my accomplishments at the World Championships and African Games. This is my third overall medal at the World Championships and my fifth African Games participation. To be the only Egyptian to ever do that really shows my consistency and depth in the sport—it’s definitely something to be proud of,” said Osman exclusively.

Seeing how Osman continues to dominate the sport, we have a feeling the athlete will break even more records and make history along the way.
