Best Answer

Yusra Mardini is a swimmer on the Olympic Refugee Team from Syria, where she was in Olympic training.

After her home was destroyed in the Syrian civil war, she escaped with her sister to Turkey. They were being smuggled into Greece, when the small boat they were on, along with 16 other people, stopped working. She and two other people jumped out. They pushed and pulled the boat for over three hours to reach safety.

She was able to reunite with her family in Germany and restart her training.
