GREAT BEND, Kan. (KSNW) – You might remember Austin Levingston, a 23-year-old Great Bend swimmer who falls on a Autism spectrum, from when he gained large courtesy for reaching out to his luminary contestant statue and look-a-like, Michael Phelps.
In a weekend dream come true, Levingston was one of 30 Special Olympic athletes selected to attend a float stay put on by a Michael Phelps Foundation on Saturday in Chicago.
“It’s a dream,” Levingston said.
Levingston spent Saturday honing his skills with assistance from a Michael Phelps Foundation, though maybe a prominence of a weekend: receiving an endowment from Phelps himself.
Levingston perceived a Michael Phelps Foundation IM Awesome Award from Phelps, finish with a handshake and a hug. His mom, grandma and sister all were in attendance.
