The 12-year-old Colombian Paralympic swimmer with the great results!

Sara Vargas made headlines the moment she arrived in Lima, as the youngest athlete at the 2019 Parapan American Games. But that was not enough for the 12-year-old who can now call herself a double Parapan champion after picking up her second gold – and third medal - at the Centro Acuatico.

“The truth is I don’t think about the age, only about how much I’ve practiced to be here. It’s never too early or to late to dream big,” Vargas said after winning the women’s 50m butterfly S6. “I didn’t really expect to win this event because it was one of my worst strokes and I was second during almost the whole race,” added the Colombian.
