Yusra Mardini

Athlete who helped guide a stricken dinghy full of refugees to safety went on to compete in the 2016 Rio Olympics.

BERLIN, Germany – Swimmer Yusra Mardini, who competed in the Refugee Olympic Team at the 2016 Games, fled her native Syria in 2015 and boarded a small dinghy in Turkey full of refugees bound for Greece.

When the boat’s engine cut out and it began to sink, Yusra, then aged 17, her older sister Sara and two other people jumped into the water to lighten the load and guide the boat to safety until it reached the Greek island of Lesvos three-and-a-half hours later, saving the lives of those on board.
