Hekaytee S3E9 Omar Hegazy - Swimmer & Mountain Climber

Omar Hegazy: the first Egyptian to swim from Jordan to Egypt with an amputated leg. Egyptian swimmer Omar Hegazy, 30, became the first Egyptian to cross the 20 kilometers from Jordan’s al-Aqaba to Egypt’s Taba, challenging his own limits after having lost his leg in a tragic accident.

Since this accident, Omar has been keen to continue all his favorite sports — swimming, diving and even mountain climbing — to “prove to the entire world that people can always choose to be greater than they ever thought they can be.”
