Get Ready to Redefine Your Idea of an Athlete!

Swimmer Girl competed in her first swim meet!!!! It was held at the Rec Center on the Campus of Miami University in Oxford.

Saturday afternoon she swam in the 50 meter freestyle heat -- and timed in at 1:35.80.

Then on Sunday, she swam in the 50 meter backstroke heat with a time of 1:33.70!

We are so incredibly proud of Swimmer Girl, a little girl who was never even supposed to walk and has one less arm to propel herself through the water than all the other swimmers! Only God knew what a treasure was waiting for us in that little orphanage in Vinnitza, Ukraine...

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; be not frightened, neither be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9

No redefinition needed; she is an athlete in the true sense of the word.
