A 26 year old Egyptian swimmer just became the first Egyptian swimmer to pass Al Aqaba Gulf in 8 hours.
Omar Hegazy is a banker who recently lost his leg in a tragic accident, but that didn’t stop him from finding his place in history as he managed to pass Al Aqaba Gulf starting from Jordan’s Harbor to Taba’s coast in a move to boost and empower Egyptian tourism.
Since this accident, Omar has been keen on practicing all of his favorite sports as swimming, diving and even climbing mountains.
The Egyptian champion decided to go through this adventure in order to challenge himself and send a worldwide message that Egypt is safe. He picked I CHOOSE as a slogan for his adventure to state that with hope you can achieve your goal and it’s your call to keep moving forward.
A message from us to Omar: You’re a fighter, keep rocking!
