040  |  OVER LACK OF SUPPORT, BECCA MEYERS WITHDRAWS FROM PARALYMPICS
by Matthew De George
Becca Meyers, who is deaf and blind as a result of Usher syndrome, requires a personal care assistant (PCA) to complete her daily activities in and out of the pool while at the Paralympics. However, since COVID-19 restrictions have limited the presence of non-athletes at the Games—including her PCA (who is also her mother)—Meyers elected to withdraw from what would have been her third Paralympics.

by Matthew De George
American sprinter David Curtiss has signed a sponsorship agreement with Speedo, one of the first collegiate swimmers to avail himself of new NCAA rules allowing athletes to profit off their name, image and likeness (NIL).
