Legally blind and deaf swimmer providing inspiration at Norwin High School


See CBS Pittsburgh

Attend a swim team practice at Norwin High School, and it could be any school in any town – until one swimmer exits the pool, and you notice the white cane.

“Some people may be surprised that I swim,” says senior swimmer Hunter McGowan, “but I swim anyhow.”

The surprise comes from the fact that Hunter is both legally blind and legally deaf.
