CAHS Alumni to Compete in Tokyo Paralympics

CAHS alumni and Paralympic athlete Joel Gomez qualified for the Paralympic Games. Joel was born with blue cone monochromacy, a rare genetic eye condition that has rendered him legally blind and color blind. Joel was also born with a passion for athletics. This passion has taken Joel, now an award-winning member of the United States Paralympic Track and Field team, to races in Switzerland, Peru, and Dubai. Joel is currently preparing to represent the United States as a member of Team USA once at the Tokyo Paralympics from August 24 – September 5, 2021. Joel plans to attend Purdue University this fall, where he intends to study industrial engineering.
