About Me: Hey im Brady O'Shaughnessy (O-SHAUN-uh-SEE).
Im a junior at PCHS in Pekin Illinois.
I started swimming in meets when I was 8 years old at Sunset Hills Country Club. I stopped swimming about a year and a half later and started again the summer before my 7th grade year. Im currently a 3rd year varstiy swimmer for the Pekin Dragons.
Since i could walk I have played almost every sport you can think of, from basketball and baseball to inline hockey and BMX. But for me swimming was where it was at.
I dont consider myself great at any one swimming event, rather I try to be respectable in most of them.
Along with swimming I have ran a couple of 5ks, one triathlon, and plan to run an ultramarathon in April with friends.
I have a really odd fear of fish. Ironic, I know.
I like reading, hanging out with friends, playing cards, and playing guitar in my spare time.
Got all that? Good, there will be a test.
Motivation: Trying to get just a little better every day.
Goals: Swim at the Illinois State meet at least once before I graduate.
