Commenting on the new facility, Lajnef said: 'I am extremely thrilled at the opportunity to drive Nike’s first-ever swim clinic forward. Ever since I was four years old, I have found true salvation and freedom in water and this is something I want other women to experience too.'

'I have always been very passionate about swimming and being able to coach others and introduce them to this beautiful sport is something that brings me immense joy and excitement,' he added.
