When we talk about swimming in Morocco, the emblematic figure remains undoubtedly Sara El Bekri. She is the first Moroccan swimmer to reach the semi-finals of the Olympic Games, to wich she participated in two occasions: Beijing 2008 and London 2012.
Multiple times champion of Africa, Morocco and the Arab World, Sara still holds several national records. In September 2013 she became the first Arab and Maghrebin woman to swim across the Strait of Gibraltar.
We are delighted to count on this outstanding champion to launch this first edition of the Swim in Morocco-Marchica and to promote swimming within the Kingdom.
