Yusra Mardini is a swimmer, she was a member of the first refugee team to participate in 2016 in the Olympics. She had to flee from Damascus, Syria with her sister as their home was destroyed during war in their country. They were on a long and difficult journey crossing different countries till they reached Germany, their goal, a good place for swimmers as they had heard. During their trip they were on board of a boat and the engine broke so Yusra jumped into the sea with her sister and a boy and they pulled the boat carrying around 20 people swimming for more than three hours until they reached the shore of Lesbos, in Greece.
