Calley Duvall says she has been selected to represent Oregon.
She’s been ‘mermaiding’ for the last 6 years.
Duvall says because of health issues, she needs to stay active and swimming is one of the ways she does it.
Since she loves costumes and creating them – she made herself a mermaid tail and found a passion for it.
“I’ve been working on form and practicing going the distance, just trying to be the best I can be while having fun. I’m supporting the Dunn House here in Medford and I’m also supporting the Oregon Coast Aquarium,” she said.
Duvall is still looking for last-minute sponsors and donations for her trip to nationals.
If you’d like to help, contact her directly at 541-646-0013.
