Evansville native Mikaela Jenkins is now a two-time gold medalist.
On Tuesday, the 18-year-old won first place in the Women's 100M Butterfly Stroke in the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.
The 100M Butterfly stroke was one of four events Jenkins was set to compete in.
On Thursday, Jenkins, along with Team USA, won the 4x100M Medley relay with a total of 34 points.
As her Team USA bio page explains, Jenkins was born with left Proximal Femoral Focal Deficiency and underwent a left Symes Amputation when she was eight months old. After being fitted with her first prosthesis at the age of one-year-old, Jenkins was walking independently at the age of 17-months-old.
She learned to swim at age four and began swimming competitively when she was eight.
