12 Paralympians To Watch: RHISP’s Cat Bouwkamp At Top of The List October 1st, 2011

On International Paralympic Day, with less than a year to go before the start of the 2012 Games, the U.S. Paralympic News named Cat Bouwkamp as one of 12 of the top U.S. athletes to watch as we near the London 2012 Games.


After Cat’s amazing performance at the Wheelchair Pan American Championships in Brazil in August, this 15 year old has become one of the first athletes to qualify for the 2012 Paralympic Games.


A three-time World Cup medalist, Bouwkamp will attempt to become the first wheelchair fencing gold medalist for the United States in London.


“I was so excited to know that I will be going to London in 2012. I couldn’t stop smiling,” Bouwkamp said after her victory at the Pan Am Championships. Bouwkamp, a sophomore at Fishers High School in suburban Indianapolis, has been fencing since she was nine, when she was taught the sport at a YMCA, and has won several national championships and international medals.


Congratulations, Cat!!
