Silver Streak Swim Club Swimmer, Devin Marrero, to Compete
at U.S. Paralympic Trials for Chance to Swim at Rio 2016

Yonkers resident and Mercy College graduate Devin Marrero will compete in the United States Paralympic Team Trials in swimming for a chance to represent the United States in the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games. Marrero, who hascerebral palsy, has qualified in 5 events. He will swim the 100 meter backstroke, 100 meter breaststroke, 50 meter butterfly and 50 and 100 meter freestyle.

The Team Trials are being held from June 30 to July 2, 2016 in Charlotte, NC and will determine the United States Paralympic team for Rio. The Rio 2016 Paralympic Games will be held from September 7-18, in the same facilities as the 2016 Olympic Games.

Marrero will represent Silver Streaks Swim Club, which swims out of the Theodore D. Young Community Center in Greenburgh. Head Coach and Owner Gay Silverman said Devin has to work 3 times as hard as our able bodied swimmers in order to do well. He wants to be better than his best and will do whatever it takes to get there. We are elated to see his dream of qualifying for team trials become a reality.

I may have a physical disability, but that has never stopped my mind, my determination and my drive to achieve all that I set my mind to. Learning to be persistent and persevere through all obstacles and challenges, I have achieved my dreams of having a chance to compete in the Paralympic games. I hope to show that even though someone might have a disability, it doesnt mean they are any less capable than anyone else said Marrero about qualifying to compete at the Paralympic Team Trials.
