Area keeps raising bar, bringing home gold

Surprise, surprise — Waukesha County’s impact on the fall sports season was profound and undeniable. In nearly every WIAA sanctioned high school sport that took place between August and November, there were teams or athletes winning state titles from the area. That is no small feat, regardless of the expectations or level of talent dispersed from Oconomowoc to New Berlin, from Menomonee Falls to Mukwonago, and everywhere in between.

'The Swimmers': The True Story Behind Two Syrian Refugees' Swim for Freedom

Editor's Note: The following contains spoilers for the Netflix film, The Swimmers. Based on true events, Sally El Hosaini's The Swimmers sheds light on the lives of Sarah Mardini (Manal Issa) and Yusra Mardini (Nathalie Issa), two Syrian refugees who escape their war-torn country to find a new life in Europe. The latter of the two went on to represent the Refugee Olympic Team at the 2016 Rio Olympics and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. But the best part about Hosaini's biographical drama is not just the magnitude of the Mardini sisters' achievement and bravery. There are many inspiring moments throughout the movie that makes The Swimmers a touching drama with the refugee crisis at the heart of it. While the three-hour-long swim across the Aegean Sea is the defining moment of the film's storyline, there are many other events as well that will inspire awe and shock from the audiences. With a tale of a refugee making it big on the Olympic stage being presented, it's worth questioning how much of The Swimmers is dramatized to present a tale of guts and gumption. Although Hosaini has agreed of making fictionalizations in favor of honoring the larger refugee crisis, it's worth exploring how much of these fictionalizations make the film's depiction deviate from the true story of the Mardinis.
