Previously, Andrea participated in basketball, bowling, track and field, and golf. Now her favorite sport is tennis. She attributes her big win to daily practice.
When asked if she was proud of her medal, she replied: "Oh, yeah!"
"I like doing the ups and downs in tennis, that is what I call the racket bounce," Andrea told Scholastic News Online. "I like my coach Kathy Meyer, and I am glad we are here."
She has also enjoyed meeting the many stars attending the Special Olympics World Games.
"Maria Shriver was the best!" she said.
