A blind olympian named Millie wants to be a olympian instead of a paralinpic athlete.
Hi! I'm Millie.
Hey Millie can you read this? Oh forgot your blind.
Deal: If Millie can get a Olympic trial quallifying time she can perticipate in the trials and if she gets 1st or 2nd in the finals she can perticipate in the Olympics.
Hello... Yes olympic commitee I was wondering is there any way I con preticipate in the olympics ... I'll take that deal thanks... tell the world to watch out because here I come.
In the middle of hot and sunny South Texas a girl named Millie lives with her family in their small house. Millie is a blind swimmer and has a dream of making the olympic team thats right not the paralimpic team, the olympic team, and shes determined to make her dream a reality.
I am Ready!
Millie hates being labeled disabled which is why she refuses to go into the paralympics.
Eggs or pancakes? Panckaes or eggs? I want pancakes but Olympics require eggs... Okay fine i'll eat eggs.
But with one phone call and a determined spirt she is one step closer to achiving her dream.
So when Millie went home that night she made a plan that was certain to lead her to her goal.
Today at 4:30am was the beggining of a long road to the Olympics and it all starts with a nurishing breakfast and a morning workout.
Compeditive Swimming is hard enough but being blind takes the struggles to a whole new level. While Millie her works on her strokes per length memory so she knows when to turn, her bodie is becoming stonger and more prepared to face sectionals (swim meet). But one day of hard core work won't satisfie Millie.
