Prairie Grit athletes tackle swimming

News

One organization is doing its part to make sure having a disability, doesn’t mean you can’t play sports. It all started with a sled hockey team a little over two years ago. Since then, Prairie Grit Adaptive Sports has expanded to include a variety of activities including swimming.

The athletes competed in both classic and new swimming events, testing their speed and skill. In one event, the swimmers worked to collect as many ping pong balls as they could in a minute. After the awards ceremony, the athletes shared their reasons for taking part.

“Because, so you can get good exercise,” says Annalise Hogueland, Prairie Grit Athlete.

“I have asthma and, for some reason, when I’m swimming, I don’t really feel it,” says Ronnie Olson, Prairie Grit Athlete.

You can catch these athletes and more in a sled hockey game against the Magic City Motor Speedway race car drivers on the 30th at the Maysa Arena.
