Egyptian artist Ahmed Hatem achieved a world sporting achievement by participating in his country’s swimming team and entered the Guinness Book of Records for the 100x50m relay race, where he and his team broke the record in this race.

Hatem revealed the scenes of the achievement he achieved within the national team, and said during an intervention on a program on a local channel two days ago, that he had not practiced swimming for 16 years, as he had participated before that in the Egyptian championships, pointing out that since he chose to engage in acting, he moved away from practicing that sport.

He also added that a number of his friends participating in the attempt to enter “Guinness” contacted him and told him that they chose him to be with them, explaining: “I was not exercising and my fitness was not at its best, but I tried to exercise so as not to be a burden to them and we achieved the desired goal.

” It is noteworthy that 100 Egyptian swimmers, aged between 15 and 63, entered the world encyclopedia of the 100x50m relay, after they broke the record set by the English swimming team in 2019 with a time of 43:32:36 minutes, and the Egyptians broke the record with a time of 42:12:15 In the attempt that took place at New Giza Club, it entered the Guinness Book of Records, according to Egyptian media.

Hatem expressed his happiness to participate in this event, which he said was “very difficult to repeat”, stressing that it was his friends who encouraged him so that they could all eventually break England’s record.

It is noteworthy that Egypt received the Guinness World Records certificate after breaking the record achieved by English swimmers on May 4, 2019
