Inglewood native Jamal Hill is set to represent Team USA Swimming at the upcoming Tokyo Paralympics. This will be the first Paralympic journey for the 26-year-old. In 2019, the Hiram College graduate won second place in the 100-meter freestyle at the Indianapolis World Para Swimming World Series.
Prior to that, in 2018 at the Paralympics Swimming Para National Championships, Hill took home first place in the 100-meter freestyle and the 50-meter freestyle, along with second place in the 100-meter backstroke.
The upcoming Paralympic Games, which have been delayed due to the pandemic, will take place beginning August 25, 2021, but will be officially referred to as the ‘2020 Tokyo Paralympics’, due to the fact that the occasion was originally scheduled for the year of 2020.
NBCUniversal will broadcast 1,200 hours of Paralympic programming of the Tokyo Games, including more than 200 hours of TV coverage among NBC, NBCSN, and the Olympic Channel, along with over 1,000 hours of live streaming across 19 sports on NBC’s digital platforms.
