The Egyptian team opened its final appearance with a program set to music from the Lion King’s soundtrack. The team consisted of Nehal Saafan, Samia Ahmed, Dara Hassanien, Jomana Elmaghrabi, Nour Elayoubi, Leila Abdelmoez, Salma Sherif Negmeldin, Nariman Abdel Hafiz, and Nada Saafan.

Ahead of their appearance at the Olympics, the nine participants in Egypt’s synchronized swimming team were interviewed and revealed that while they hope to win a medal, their goal at this Olympics is to beat Australia.

At this year’s Olympic Games, Egypt has achieved three bronze medals. Two of the medals were won by Sara Ahmed and Mohamed Ihab in weightlifting, and one was won by Hedaya Malak in taekwondo.
