Girl with Down syndrome thriving on swim team


Courtney takes off for some laps.


Courtney Pyburn, a 12-year-old North Carolina girl with Down syndrome, trains and competes on her community swim team with children without disabilities and is flourishing. "Other sports, there's a roster," says her coach. "... And swimming, it's much more individual in that you're competing against yourself as well as the other teams."
