A Rice swimmer is going for the gold medal again.
Ahalya Lettenberger is not your average swimmer, though. She’s headed to London to compete with Team USA against other athletes with disabilities at the biggest international meet of the year.
Ahalya was born with a condition called arthrogryposis multiplex congenital. It’s a muscular skeletal disorder that affects her from the hips down and doesn’t give her full use of her legs.
“My hips are dislocated,” Ahalya said. “My knees only bend to 90 degrees and my ankles don’t move at all.”
