  • On the track, Tatyana McFadden, Amanda McGrory, and Chelsea McClammer, “Mcswept” the podium in the 1,500- and 5,000-meter finals. McFadden and McGrory also took home a silver and bronze medal, respectively, in the Marathon.
  • In a sprint finish with the top 8 women, Susannah Scaroni had a strong showing in the marathon, finishing the race at 1:38:47.
  • Hannah McFadden made her presence known by nabbing a 4th place finish in a very fast 100-meter race.
  • In one of the closest races throughout the competition, Brian Siemann took 4th place by .02 in the 800-meter final.
  • In an exciting sprint finish of 11-men fighting for bronze in the Marathon, Aaron Pike finished with a time of 1:30:13.

We are so incredibly proud of our alumni for their performances throughout the Rio Paralympic Games. Their efforts are a testament to the work and time they have dedicated to performing at the highest level possible. Go Team USA!


Stay-Focused empowers teens with disabilities through SCUBA certification and leadership development programs

From the moment they enter the water, Stay-Focused participants experience a world without limitations. For most participants, SCUBA diving offers a level of independence unattainable in their daily lives, providing freedom of movement without the help of adaptive equipment. Leadership development programs taught by a distinguished group of corporate and community leaders further encourage participants to translate this newfound freedom into their daily lives, giving them the confidence to pursue their greatest ambitions.
