Brittany Ryerson is one of nine swimmers for Team Iowa. "This is my first time competing in the USA Games," she says. "My family and friends think it's pretty awesome that I got selected."
Brittany has been swimming since middle school, where her adaptive physical education teacher suggested she try swimming. Brittany's favorite stroke is backstroke, because "I go faster." Faster earned her a second place in her division in 100M backstroke with a time of 4:23:25. She also placed third in her division in the 100M freestyle with a time of 3:47:63.
