Osman’s previous lifetime best of 55.35, posted in 2015 when Osman was only 20-years-old, had stood as the National Record for nearly 4 years. Because she placed 28th overall she will not get the opportunity to lower her record further at this competition.
Osman also holds the Egyptian National Records in the 50 freestyle, 50 butterfly, and 100 butterfly.
