Swimmer with Autism Inspires Others

SNELLVILLE, Ga. — As in many years past, a very special event will kick off the 2011 Gwinnett County Swim League Championships today at the Georgia Tech Aquatic Center.
It's called the Spirit of the League, and it's a 50-yard freestyle event that allows swimmers with special needs to compete and achieve.
Perhaps no participant personifies the Spirit of the League event more than Charles Lindsay.
Diagnosed as having autism with severe language impairment at age 2, the 16-year-old has had plenty of obstacles to overcome in his young life.
