Former Butler runner set to compete in Paralympics in Tokyo


INDIANAPOLIS — Former Butler University Track & Field runner Dani Aravich will represent Team USA this summer at the Paralympics in Tokyo.

Aravich, who was a long distance runner for the Bulldogs, will run the 400-meter. She was born without the lower half of her left arm and will compete alongside others with limb differences.

“There’s a lot of people out there that are physically different like that that I just never knew existed until I got involved in the Paralympics,” said Aravich.

The Paralympics start August 24 and conclude September 5.
