Para swimmer Elizabeth Marks has been making waves (literally) during the 2021 Paralympics in Tokyo. On the first day of competition, she broke the Paralympic record in the 50m freestyle S6 heat with a time of 33.16 and won silver in the race in the finals. Not bad for her first time swimming freestyle in a Paralympic final. She also competed in the 200m individual medley SM6, where she came in fourth.

This isn’t Marks’s first rodeo: she competed in the Rio Games in 2016, taking home two medals.
