Penn State swimmer Sean Brame, a quadruple amputee, recorded a lifetime best in the 100 freestyle Sunday by clocking a time of 1 minute, 32.78 seconds to finish second in the 2017 World Para Swimming World Series.

Brame finished with a memorable weekend, as he also grabbed gold Friday in the 400 (6:39.92) and bronze Saturday in the 50 (45.01).

Penn State’s ability athletes will next compete in July.

Frederick grabs 3 golds

Penn State ability track and field athlete Emily Frederick, a dwarf, finished with three gold medals over the weekend in the shot put, discus and javelin at the GLASA Adult National Open & Great Lakes Regional Games.

In the discus, she won with a toss of 51 feet, 5 inches. In the shot put, she finished on top with a heave of 16-6 and — in her first javelin throw of the season — crossed the 36-foot plateau.

As a dwarf, Frederick competes in Class 40.
