14-Year-Old Lebanese Swimmer Broke 4 Personal Records At Fina World Junior Swimming Championship


Lebanon’s National Team Swimmer Lori Awad performed remarkably at the Fina World Junior Swimming Championship, which was held in Lima, Peru

Lori Awad, who was one of the youngest swimmers to participate in the championship, faced strong competition from older female swimmers.

The 14-year-old smashed 4 personal records in the 50-meter freestyle, the 100-meter freestyle, the 50-meter butterfly race, and the 100-meter butterfly race.

The Lebanese swimmer aspires to achieve more success in championships abroad and raise the Lebanese flag high.

She previously participated in the CIJ MEET, an international swimming tournament in Luxemburg, where she scored 1st place.

She won a gold medal in the 200-meter butterfly juniors, won 3rd place and a bronze medal in the 100-meter butterfly, 4th place in the 100-meter breaststroke, and 4th place in the 200m.

Consequently, she was the first Lebanese to reach such an amazing achievement in an international tournament in Europe.
