Zeiad Kahil, a 20 years old business management student made Paralympic swimmer. Zeiad’s case was a difficult first one in the family as it was hard to know how to deal with difference. Water was the prescribed medication for Zeiad, one to help support his case. Swimming was very difficult at first. It was tough for him to float and even swim since his lower body lost all motion. The first turning point is when Zeiad made it successfully to a 50 meters swim!
In 2013, Zeiad joined the Paralympic championship in Egypt for the first time, and 4 years after, in 2017, he joined the national team! In 2017, the head coaches and the judges agreed that Zeiad is a good swimmer and with potential that can accomplish success. He was qualified and competed in the Olympic games Tokyo 2020.
