Once, there was a girl who loved to swim. Her name was Yusra Mardini. She was born in Damascus, Syria, a country long gripped by war. When her home was destroyed by a bomb she knew she had to leave the country, so she and her family fled by way of a boat filled with too many refugees. When the motor broke down, she and her sisters became heroes, swimming and pulling the boat to safety. In Germany, Yusra found glory as one of the first refugee teams ever to compete in the Olympics.
