Rami Anis began formally swimming in his native Syria in 2014. When the conflict became too much to bear he fled to Turkey. Thinking he would only be there for a short time, he took not much more than a change of clothes with him. Now living in Belguim, Rami will compete in the Men's 100m freestyle on Tuesday, August 9th and the Men's 100m butterfly Thursday, 11th August.
