On August 8, 2003 the Muslim Journal reported that "Mujahid El-Amin, a 16-year old swimming 'wunderkind' for the City of Atlanta's Dolphins Swim team qualified in early July, 2003, at the Georgia State Swimming Championships for the 2004 Olympic Trials... Mujahid joins fellow team member and fellow Muslim, Sabir Muhammad II, who already qualified for the Trials in the 50 and 100 meter freestyle at the Janet Evan Invitation Meet held in Los Angeles, Calif., two weeks earlier. Sabir, the first African American to hold an American swimming record, is currently training in Alabama for his third Olympic Trials."
