LYNNWOOD -- Kayla Wheeler is a 16-year-old swimming phenomenon. She continues to shatter world records, all while dealing with a disability that would keep most people out of the water. Kayla was born a congenital amputee, with no legs and only one arm. Her mom Joyce started her daughter in swim lessons when Kayla was just a toddler after a doctor recommended hydrotherapy for Kayla’s disability.
