Who is your athletic idol? My Dad is my athletic idol because he is like a tank, sees no obstacles, and always goes to the very end, overcoming every challenge. He never stops. Also, my older brother Tarek, because after all my years in synchro he still managed to beat me while holding our breath underwater.
