Egyptian with Down Syndrome aims to make history by crossing English Channel
Mohamed Al-Husseini is set to become the first Egyptian with down syndrome to cross the English Channel.
The Egyptian swimmer is aiming to swim from South of England to North of France [36 kilometers] non-stop and in just 15 hours.
“The training program that Al-Husseini follows includes physical and psychological training, including the hardships that the swimmer may have to deal with like water currents and the low temperature at night,” Mohamed’s trainer told Al-Masry Al-Youm.
Al-Husseini lives in UAE and is planning to raise both the Egyptian and Emirati flags when he completes his challenge.
The 18-year-old should cross the English channel sometime between Thursday, 24 August and Monday, 4 September.
