If you are an Olympic athlete, you can expect free accommodations at high-end hotels, free transportation and meals when you travel the world competing. But for amateurs and average swimmers, getting so much for free is not a reasonable expectation.

Except for The Pharaoh’s Swim in Egypt. It is unique.

The Pharaoh’s Swim is the Global Swim Series Egyptian Championships that is held in the Red Sea between October 30th and November 4th 2021. Hosted by Stroke For Egypt Academy under the vision and direction of Captain Khaled Shalaby, a disabled swimmer who crossed the English Channel with one arm in 16 hours 20 minutes in 1983, and Captain Sherwitte Hafez who represented Egypt at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games.

  • Free accommodation at the 6-star Baron Palace – Sahl Hasheesh with free meals included.
  • Free trip to Luxor and Valley of the Kings.
  • Free transportation to and from the airport.

That is a truly incredible offer,” commented Steven Munatones. “I cannot imagine that this offer for the free rooms and meals and ground transportation is going to last long.”
