Rami Anis (swimming)

Who is he? The 25-year-old fled war-torn Syria in 2015, travelling by boat across the Mediterranean Sea to Turkey before continuing to Belgium.

How did he do? Anis earned a standing ovation after setting a personal best in the men's 100m freestyle. He clocked 54.25 seconds to finish 56th out of 59 in the heats.
