The World's Smallest Athlete

(EXCLUSIVE) SPRINGFIELD, VA - OCTOBER 23: Super swimmer Jess Rogers is making a big splash in the world of swimming - as she battles to qualify for the London 2012 paralympic games next year. The 14-year-old, from Springfield, VA, suffers from caudal regression syndrome (CRS) meaning she was born with two tiny legs she cannot use. But that hasn't stopped Jess from becoming the world's smallest athlete. She trains hard every week to make her greatest wish come true - to make the US national paralympic swimming team. Pictures show her at home with mum dedicated mum Phyllis, who adopted Jess as a baby from Brazil. And it's not just at swimming Jess amazes. Even at home she gets involved in everything she can - from housework to riding her special bike - using only her hands to walk.
