Multicultural Hero: Simone Manuel
Simone Manuel has become a world champion and an American record holder. Recently she took home a gold and silver medal at the 2014 Philips 66 National Championships in the 50 and 100 meter freestyle respectively. Her success in the pool has fueled her desire to make an impact on the dry side of the sport. Manuel's goal is to increase awareness of swimming as a viable sports participation option for minorities.
