Hill Country Village teen ties Deaympics record
NORTH EAST ISD A Hill Country Village teenager and incoming Churchill High School junior tied a record in the world’s largest sporting event involving deaf athletes. Swimmer Carli Cronk won 12 gold medals at the 24th Summer Deaympics, which occurs every four years. This year the event was held May 1-15 in Caxias do Sul, Brazil. Cronk tied with South African swimmer Terence Par- kin for the most gold medals won by anyone in a single Deaympics, ocials with the USA Deaf Sports Federation said. Parkin won 12 gold medals at the 2005 Melbourne Deaympics. This year’s event attracted 2,358 deaf athletes from 72 nations. Cronk, who was born deaf and relies on hearing aids and lip reading, said she loves swimming competitively. But she also said it felt “surreal” to be competing at her rst Deaympics. “It has come so fast. It’s nice to be here and see some of the swimmers I raced [in the 2019 World Deaf Swimming Championships] and meet some new swimmers, too. It feels, again, surreal to be competing in a global meet,” Cronk said. Cronk has excelled at Churchill, winning a bronze medal in the women’s 200-meter freestyle at the 2022 University Interscholastic League Class 6A state championships.

Cronk won one silver medal and two bronze medals at the 2019 World Deaf Swimming Championships. She previously was part of the Hollywood Park Hammerheads swim team. Cronk was accompanied by her parents, Mark and Jane Cronk, on the Deaympics trip. Team USA Swim Coach Alexander Taylor praise Cronk for her competitive spirit. “Carli has been fantastic. Competing in a competition like this is grueling, but Carli is a great teammate and is always quick to make a joke and help make others around her have fun. She’s a hardworking athlete, and her results really speak for itself,” Taylor said.
