Lebanese Record-holder Munzy Kabbara Verbally Commits to TAMU for 2021

Fitter and Faster Swim Clinics is the proud sponsor of SwimSwam’s College Recruiting Channel and all commitment news. For many, swimming in college is a lifelong dream that is pursued with dedication and determination. Fitter and Faster is proud to honor these athletes and those who supported them on their journey.

Munzy Kabbara, a high school junior who lives in Houston, Texas and represents Lebanon internationally, has verbally committed to Texas A&M University for 2021-22. He will join Tyler Hulet in the class of 2025. Kabbara wrote on social media:

“I’m so stoked to announce my verbal commitment to swim and study at the Texas A&M University! Thank you to my family, coaches, teammates, and friends for supporting me through this process. Super hyped to start the next chapter in my life. #gigem!”

Kabbara is a USA Swimming Scholastic All-American from Cypress Woods High School. He swims fly and IM in high school and competed in the 200 IM and 100 fly at the 2019 Texas UIL 6A State Championships last February. In club swimming he swims with Cypress Fairbanks Swim Club, focusing mainly on the 400 IM and 200 fly.

Top SCY times:

  • 400 IM – 3:53.68
  • 200 IM – 1:51.31
  • 200 fly – 1:50.37
  • 200 back – 1:52.83
  • 200 breast – 2:07.84
  • 1650 free – 15:53.80
  • 500 free – 4:37.47

Born in Houston to a Lebanese father and an American mother, Kabbara is a dual citizen and has been on the Lebanese National Team since he was 14. He competed at FINA World Championships in Gwangju, swimming the 200 IM and the 400 IM. He also represented Lebanon at Short Course Worlds last December. He went best times in the SCM 200 fly (2:05.29) and 400 IM (4:21.59), taking down the Lebanese record in the latter. In LCM he holds national records in the 200 fly (2:05.91), 200 IM (2:05.48), and 400 IM (4:28.83). Those three times came from Des Moines Futures this summer, where he was runner-up in the 400 IM, 3rd in the 200 IM, and 6th in the 200 fly.
