Tunisian Ous Mellouli becomes the first swimmer to win an Olympic gold in the pool (1500m in Beijing) and in open water. In fact he was the first to even qualify to the Games in both disciplines, let alone win. He's been struggling with shoulder and back problems but he's managed to win a bronze (1500m) and a gold (10km marathon swim) in London. All I can say is WOW!
A shoutout to Bahrain's former double world champion Maryam Jamal who won the 1500m on the track clocking 4:10.74.
