Farida Osman, the Egyptian swimmer, recently showcased her skills at the World Aquatic Championships in Fukuoka, Japan. Although she missed out on a medal by a mere 0.16 seconds, her remarkable performance was something that left everyone talking.
Her journey to the World Championships was not an easy one. Countless hours were spent in the pool, rigorous training sessions, and sacrifices were made to reach this pinnacle of achievement.
Following the defeat, Osman took to Instagram to share her feelings, saying, “Really wanted to bring back another medal for Egypt but it wasn’t written for me. This sport may be harsh and unforgiving but I enjoy and get fueled by the challenges that come with it. I’m really proud of myself for showing up and giving it my all.”
Whether it’s nabbing a Gold Medal in 50M & 100 butterfly in 2019 at the African Games or getting the title of Best Female Swimmer in 2011 in Qatar, Osman is making waves everywhere she goes, no matter the setbacks.
