Nike has announced the launch of its first swim clinic for women led by Tunisian Olympian swimmer Sarra Lajnef.

The swim clinic comes as part of what the international sportswear brand says its goal to promote access to sports for women in the region.

The free swim clinic, which kicked off on November 1, will run until Saturday, November 28, in partnership with Hamdan Sports Complex in Dubai and in line with the fourth Dubai Fitness Challenge.

“I am extremely thrilled at the opportunity to drive Nike’s first-ever swim clinic forward. Ever since I was four years old, I have found true salvation and freedom in water and this is something I want other women to experience too. I have always been very passionate about swimming and being able to coach others and introduce them to this beautiful sport is something that brings me immense joy and excitement," said Lajnef in a statement.

The swim clinic, which is for both beginners and intermediate level swimmers, is part of Nike’s 30-day calendar of fitness and movement. Nike is also offering free access to YouTube live-streamed classes ranging from Hiit (high-intensity interval training), yoga, dance and mindfulness.
