Seven medals for Cloverdale’s Arianna Hunsicker

The young para swimmer stacks up the medals at the 2016 BC Summer Games – and busts six personal bests

A young swimmer from Cloverdale turned in an outstanding performance at the 2016 BC Summer Games, picking up medals in all seven swims in the para swimming class.

Arianna Hunsicker, 12, won six gold medals and one silver at the games, held July 21-24 in Abbotsford.

She raced against both male and female athletes from across the province, proving her hard training with the Surrey Knights Swim Club is paying off.

Hunsicker – who dreams to one day represent Canada at the Paralympics –  pushes herself to continuously beat her personal best swim times.

At the Games, she managed to do just that in six of seven races.

Hunsicker is also a proud CHAMP, a representative of War Amps’ Child Amputee program, which offers services to child amputees and their families, including financial assistance, regional seminars and peer support.
