Gabby was very recently named as an alternate for the Ohio Special Olympics swimming team for the 2022 National Special Olympics Games.   She finished in 1st place at the 2020 State Winter Games at Bowling Green State University.  

Gabby has been swimming since she was 8 years old.  She swam for one year with the Sandusky County Special Olympics Swim Team.  Gabby competes in the 50-meter free, the 100 meter fly, and the 100 meter backstroke. Gabby’s favorite event is the fly because she says it makes her arms stronger.  Gabby says she began swimming because her dad was a swimmer in high school.  She looks forward to watching the Olympics this summer.  Gabby’s favorite swimmer was Michael Phelps.
