AL WIR SETS NEW NATIONAL RECORD
Dec 15, 2017
Amro Al Wir has set a new national short course record at the Kingdom’s Winter Swimming Championships held over the past three days in the 25m pool.
The youngster has been in imperious form this year and is the new holder for the 200m breaststroke following another excellent swim.
The tournament attracted the Kingdom’s leading talent and Bashar Al Sha'er, the Secretary General of Jordan Swimming Federation, underlined its importance.
“It's great to hold this championship for our swimmers to stay active through the winter months, and it also enables us to target more talent from across the kingdom,” he said.
Meanwhile, Dr Ali Al Nawaiseh, national team coach, praised the level of competition.
"I'm happy with the levels of participation from both genders this week,” he said. “It will give us more options when it comes to choosing the final list for the national team.”
