  • Description

    In Cairo, the Egyptian swimming and diving teams have been getting in shape for the 1972 Olympics which open in Munich, West Germany on August 26.

    Visnews cameraman Ken Ludlow was on hand for one training session at the Gezira Sporting Club last week (April 20). There, at the Club's olympic-size pool, he filmed the Egyptian and World Military Diving Champion, Wagih Abu Saud, practicing the dive that he hopes will earn him a gold medal at Munich.

    Egypt's swimming team, coached by Abdel Baki -- the oldest swimming trainer in the country -- was also there, working on the 100, 200, 400 and 1,500 metre events.
