Jordan’s young Olympic swimming sensation Khader Baqlah has made his mark already in the USA, winning gold and silver medals at his first major meet for his new university. The 18-year-old joined his teammates from the Florida University team to take gold in the 800 relay, and then showed his sprint prowess by winning silver in the 200 freestyle. His results helped his Florida Gators team to retain the men’s overall title from the three-day event held in Tennessee. Khader relocated to Florida at Christmas to continue his studies, but will still compete for Jordan at international meets when required. The SEC Championships represent the 10 universities in the South East Conference region of the USA.
