Jaide Childs Will Swim In 2012 Paralympics Representing North Central Florida, Team USA
Jaide Childs make the switch from soccer to swimming in 2009, and took to her new sport like a fish to water. Childs, who just finished 8th grade at St. Patrick's in Gainesville, was born with no muscles in her biceps or triceps, but thanks to her perseverance, she will now swim in the Paralympics in London in September. At 14 years old, Childs will be one of the youngest swimmers in the games-indeed, one of the youngest athletes- but she says she won't be intimidated by her older competition. Training out of High Tide Aquatics in Gainesville, Childs will next compete in the CanAm games in Canada, before heading overseas to compete in her first Paralympics.
