Egyptians have a good reason to be happy this morning. Farida Osman, AKA the human Flipper, won the bronze medal in the women’s 50m butterfly final in Budapest.

 

The 22-year-old swimmer achieved a 25.39s to claim Egypt’s first ever medal in the World Championships. This is a big breakthrough for Egypt, as this puts the Egyptian and African records in all three of her qualifying swims.

 

Osman also broke the African record in the 50m freestyle semi-final with a time of 24.62.

 

 

WE SAID THIS: Congratulations Osman!
