Our Afternoon With A Four-Time Paralympian!

We had fun visiting with Paralympic swimmer Cody Bureau!

After losing his hand as a child Cody developed his passion for swimming into a career as an international athlete.  While in our office today for his dental care we enjoyed hearing about Cody's trips to the Paralympic Games from Athens to Beijing to London to Rio where Cody represented the USA as a swimmer.  Cody also brought one of the medals he won in Beijing, a bronze medal in the 200IM.  As a former resident athlete at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Cody shared with us some of his favorite stories of his training and socializing with the many other resident athletes.  Most recently while training in Christiansburg for the Rio Paralympics Cody worked as a master's swim coach where he coached Dr Reynolds and other master's swimmers.  Now retired from the U.S.A. Swim Team Cody plans to return to his hometown in Pennsylvania.  Thanks Cody for sharing your afternoon with us!
