This wonderful story just in from the Shoreline Enterprise, complete with mentions of Kayla’s swim teachers, Lib and Amy! As the article notes,
This week Kayla is headed to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to compete in the 2009 International Paralympic Committee’s first Short Course Swimming World Championships.
