Biography

Alaa Maso

Alaa lived in Aleppo with his family, and began swimming at an early age thanks to his father, who became a swimming coach following his retirement from the army. Alaa trained as a swimmer and triathlete and knew fellow refugee swimmer Yusra Mardini when they were both young.

Alaa left Syria in 2015 after his training facilities were damaged and he felt the pressure of the conflict all around him. Following a long journey through Europe, he settled in Germany and began swimming training once again with Emil Guliyev. He has also returned to school and is making up on the years lost due to his flight from Syria.
