Swimmer Junaina goes Olympics

Swimmer Junaina Ahmed confirmed her wildcard berth in this year’s Tokyo Olympics, scheduled to be held from July 23 to August 8.

The England-born 18-year-old Navy swimmer Junaina is the second Bangladeshi athlete to get the ticket to this year’s Olympics after archer Ruman Shana.

The world swimming governing body FINA sent three Bangladeshi swimmers’ names —Junaina, Navy swimmer Ariful Islam and Army swimmer Jewel Ahmed — to International Olympic Committee to avail two wildcard chances.

The IOC later forwarded it to Bangladesh Olympic Committee, who asked Bangladesh Swimming Federation to select two names from three.
