Though the Leopards of Dammam are well-known for their endless talent on land, we discover the capabilities of our other Leopards whom have taken the meaning “Dive Deeper” to a whole new level. Meet Nada Al-Shaer, champion swimmer and gold medalist since 2001 and most importantly, an ISG – Dammam Leopard. She relays her experience to us firsthand:
“Swimming has been part of my life for 11 years now and it has been a blast. Accomplishing my goals came with a tough price, the dedication of having to train day and night. This year, 2015, I have competed in several competitions including the Egyptian and Saudi Arabia National competition, which were the biggest and most grand competitions I have took part in, what an honor! I was able to earn two golden medals and two silver in the Egyptian competition, and having successfully been admitted to the National team. What is even more startling is the moment I won the first place trophy in the 15-16 age group in the Saudi Arabian Swimming competition. The minute the result was announced, my heart collapsed in my chest, for it has been 9 years of competing in this field and it was my first time ever to win such a trophy. So you see now, goals can never be attained without absolute, adequate, and remarkable dedication. “
