Leah Hayes competes at the SCST Chicagoland Championship swim meet at the John B. Norris Recreation Center in St. Charles on Saturday. Hayes adjusts her goggles before the 100-yard butterfly. At 13 and almost 5 feet, 7 inches tall, Leah has realistic dreams of making an Olympic Trials cut next year, and eventually of making the U.S. Olympic team. As a 6-year-old, she was diagnosed with alopecia universals, which meant she soon would be completely bald. In just four months, she lost all the hair on her scalp and body.
