Tunisian swimmer Ahmed Hafnaoui shocked by his Olympic gold win

Dreams really do come true. Well that’s certainly the case for Tunisian swimmer Ahmed Hafnaoui. He couldn’t believe he won gold in Sunday’s men’s 400m freestyle final. The 18-year-old had swam the slowest time to qualify in the semi-final heats just the day before, so he wasn’t expected to be a strong contender for a medal. Hafnaoui won the Gold medal by just 0.16 seconds ahead of Australia’s Jack McLoughlin who won Silver, and Bronze medalist Kieran Smith from the U.S. “I was surprised myself. It’s unbelievable. I just can’t believe it,” said Hafnaoui, who won with a time of 3 minutes 43.36 seconds. “I dedicate (the gold) to all my family, my mum, my dad, my sisters, I wish they are proud of me.” His family’s reaction to his win is priceless.
