“On a weekly basis, I train most days,” says Rami. “I train in the morning and in the evening, on average I train nine times per week.”
Rami Anis, 25, a competitive swimmer from the Syrian city of Aleppo, is hoping to participate at the 2016 Olympic Games which will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He left his home town in October 2011 and flew to Istanbul, Turkey and stayed with his older brother Eyad. Rami had expected to return to Aleppo in a few months. As conflict continued in Syria, Rami’s family joined the two brothers in Istanbul and they lived there for four years. Without Turkish nationality, Rami was not able to participate in swimming competitions and he decided to go to Europe and pursue his dream of becoming a professional swimmer.
