Jamal Hill is headed to Tokyo to compete in this year's Paralympic Games. He set the American Record in the 50 Free at Paralympic Trials just last month. At 10 years old, Jamal was diagnosed with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, a neurological condition that affects the muscles in his arms and legs.
For years he didn't tell anyone not even his teammates at Hiram College!
He is also the founder of the Swim Up Hill Foundation, a non-profit focused on teaching 1 million people to swim in-person and online. Be sure to follow him on Instagram.
