Kalala was invited by FINA to compete for Syria in the men's 100 m backstroke at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. Swimming on the outside in heat one, Kalala maintained his pace from start to finish to deny Bangladeshi swimmer Rubel Rana a fourth spot in his lifetime best of 1:00.24. Kalala failed to advance to the semifinals, as he sealed the penultimate position from a roster of forty-five swimmers in the prelims.
