Nawal swam as a Synchronised Swimmer in Spain for 10 years. After retiring as a swimmer to continue her tertiary studies she became a coach.
Her first job as a coach was for C.N Kallipolis’ (Barcelona) recreational stream team. After the London Olympics Nawal got involved with the British National team and coached alongside Biz Price and Lolli Montico who inspired her to stay involved in the sport through coaching. In 2013, she moved to Australia and immediately joined the local club West Coast Splash where she now works as Head Coach. Since 2013 Nawal has also been coaching the Australian National teams both Senior and Junior.
Her synchro idol is Paola Tirados and will always be grateful to her coach Aurora Gil for inspiring her to love the sport. She loves having the opportunity to inspire the younger generations and believes the best about synchro is thelife long friendships you get to make.
