9th Annual Marin Morrison Memorial Meet
This meet, hosted by Shadow Seals, honors PNS swimmer and 2008 U.S.
Paralympian, Marin Rose Morrison. A promising able-bodied swimmer,
Marin was stricken by a brain tumor in 2005. Subsequent resection
surgeries left her with hemiplegia (paralysis on one side.) Moving
to the Seattle area in late 2005, Marin defied doctors’
prognoses, supported by PNS clubs, Shadow Seals, West Coast
Aquatics and Bellevue Club. She continued to train toward her goal
of representing the USA at the 2008 Beijing Paralympic Games,
earning her spot on the team at the US Paralympic trials in April
2008. Required brain surgery in May, 2008, provided a setback, but
Marin persevered and accomplished her goal in September, 2008,
swimming the 50 and 100 meter freestyle and 50 meter backstroke
events in Beijing. Representing her country and PNS well, this meet
serves to preserve that memory of her determination, courage, and
example of always reaching for your goal. Marin passed away on
January 2, 2009. We miss you, Marin!
