A good week for Egypt’s athletes
Egyptian Olympian swimmer Farida Osman has qualified for the 2021 Tokyo Olympics after landing the gold medal in all three events she competed in at the International Swim Coaches Association finals this week. The Tokyo games will be the third time Osman competes at the Olympics, after representing Egypt at the 2012 London Olympics and the 2016 Rio Olympics.
Egypt crushed Comoros 4-0 in yesterday’s final qualifying match for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AfCON), placing the Pharaohs at the top of its group in the qualifiers. Egypt had already ensured qualification for AfCON, which is scheduled to take place in Cameroon next year, following their away draw in the previous round of the qualifiers.
