Sarra scoops multiple honours in rowing and swimming
Sarra says she is not giving up on her Olympic dream of qualifying for a second or even third Olympic Games
Rising sporting star Sarra Lajnef continues to excel in rowing and swimming championships in the region.
At the UAE Rowing Championships, which took place in Ras Al Khaimah, Fujairah and Ajman, Sarra won 15 gold medals in the single, double, quad women, double mix and quad mix categories.
Sarra, who only began her international rowing career in 2017, also bagged seven gold medals at the second and third round of the UAE Rowing National Championships in 2017.
Representing her home country at the 2012 Olympics in London, the Tunisian swimmer also took part in the St Regis Saadiyat Island Biathlon, a sport which combines running and swimming, and won the Women Open Event with the fastest swim split overall, beating her male and female competitors.
Although Sarra gave up her ambition of pursuing her swimming career at Olympic level, she is still actively participating in a variety of swimming and rowing championships.
She first came into the limelight while she was doing her Master of International Business graduate at the University of Wollongong in Dubai (UOWD). She has never looked back since then.
Commenting on her achievements, Sarra said: "My goal is to keep doing what I love and to enjoy every second of it. If anything is meant to happen it will happen".
Sarra says she is not giving up on her Olympic dream of qualifying for a second or even third Olympic Games. "The sport in which I will take part will remain a surprise," she adds.
