While at the meet, Marcus also had a chance to meet with and swim with Glen O'Sullivan, one of the 2016 Rio Paralympic coaches and Erin Popovich, current 2020 Tokyo Paralympic Coach and past Paralympic Gold Medalist. We are so happy and proud of how far Marcus has come since his accident and what he has been able to achieve. We know the best is yet to come and that someday another young swimmer will be excited to tell people about the day they had a chance to meet and swim with Marcus Vitale at their National meet. Congrats Marcus!
