Speaking from the Olympics in London she said: “I trained ten months in Spain in order to take part in this competition. I will do my best in order to break my own world record on Friday. I think also that I can break the best world record in the Women’s Free Style 50m, 24.10 sec, achieved by the Dutch swimmer “Ronomi”, but to do this I need many years of training and preparation.”

Sabine has called on family and friends around the world to watch her compete on Friday and to pray for her as she tries to achieve a new record for Palestine.
