This is Michael’s first time competing in the USA Games. Through Special Olympics, he has gained many new friends and had found more confidence in himself. Michael loves to help others and hopes that one day he could work in the medical field, teach others to swim or serve as a lifeguard.  When he is not training, Michael enjoys playing chess, Yugioh, video games, texting and watching NASCAR.
