Misha Mykitiuk

At age 13, Micah Mykitiuk is already a national team swimmer, a reputable musician and a prosthesis developer. In swimming, Mykitiuk has been working hard this year at improving his freestyle stroke. While it is still a work in progress and has left him frustrated at times, Mykitiuk still qualified for the Parapan American Games this year in the 100 backstroke and hopes to swim more events in Mexico.

An avid athlete as a youngster, the grade eigh high school student joined the Toronto Swimming Club at age nine to pursue his competitive goals.

In music, Mykitiuk is a polished drummer who performs at various venues in Toronto and has also appeared on MuchMusic. He has his own band and performs his own compositions. His musical abilities are all the more amazing in that he was born with one small hand. Mykitiuk actually designed and built his own hand prosthesis to help him play the drums as part of a school project.
