The HardCoreSwim of the week goes to Aly Sayed of West Windsor-Plainsboro High South in New Jersey.
In his very first meet in the American high school system the Egyptian National Champion Sayed won the 100 fly at the Pirate Invitational on Saturday. The 17-year old swam a 50.72 in the prelims of the meet, followed by a 50.95, for the win.
Sayed moved to the United States in August, and told CentralJersey.com that he felt he had missed a lot of important training time since the move, but it didn’t seem to inhibit his results too badly.
That is the first time in the 34-year history of the team’s Pirate Invitational that WW-P South won their own meet, as Sayed is making immediate waves with his new teammates. The senior Sayed was quick to give credit to his teammates, noting that everyone swam well.
Making an immediate, record-breaking impact in his first-ever meet in a new atmosphere is HardCore, and for that Sayed gets the HardCore Swim of the Week.
