Selection to the Egyptian National Open Water Swim Team for the FINA World Championship led to Regina-based swimmer Kareem Tarek Mohammed being awarded the January Athlete of the Month.
Mohammed, who co-captains the University of Regina Cougars swimming team, travelled home to Egypt in December to compete in the national team 10-kilometre trial event, finishing in second. He received the letter informing him that he’d made the Egyptian team in January.
The FINA World Championship will take place in July 2023 after being postponed from May 2022 as a result of COVID-19.
Mohammed was nominated by Swim Saskatchewan.
