Adrianna was born with an eye disease that has left her extremely nearsighted and almost without peripheral vision. She has been legally blind since the age of three.
At the gymnastic competitions, the 11-year-old isn’t treated like a blind gymnast though! She is treated just like any other competitor on the floor. She earns high marks on all types of apparatus she can barely see.
“I want to be the first visually-impaired gymnast to win gold at the Olympics,” says Adrianna.
