Noor Basil Haki (Arabic: نور باسل حقي‎; born March 31, 1979) is an Iraqi former swimmer, who specialized in sprint freestyle events.[1] Haki competed for Iraq in the women's 50 m freestyle at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney. She received a ticket from FINA, under a Universality program, in an entry time of 30.15.[2] She challenged six other swimmers in heat two, including Cambodia's two-time Olympian Hem Raksmey and Maldives' 13-year-old Fariha Fathimath. Entering the race with a fastest-seeded time, she faded down the stretch to pick up a last seed in 35.51, more than five seconds below her entry standard. Haki failed to advance into the semifinals, as she placed seventy-first overall in the prelims.[3][4][5]
