Preparing for the Paralympics: 16-year-old swimmer set to represent Uganda

Husnah Kukundakwe, Uganda's sole para-swimmer at 16, made her Paralympic debut at Tokyo 2021 at age 14, now poised for Paris 2024. Born in 2007 without a right lower arm and with a left-hand impairment, she overcame societal barriers to pursue swimming.
