Deaf US swimmer wins bronze at Pan Am Games


For American swimmer Marcus Titus, being deaf is more advantage than disability, at least when it’s time to get in the water. “It helps me stay in my own world, helps me focus on what I need to do,” the 25-year-old said at the Pan American Games after winning a bronze medal in his first ever major competition not restricted to people with disabilities, with a 1:01.12 in the 100 breaststroke behind Brazil’s Felipe França da Silva and Felipe Lima in 1:00.34 and 1:00.99 respectively. Now he aims for a spot at the 2012 Olympic Team, read AP
