BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- An Alabama swimmer is going to the Paralympic Games for a sixth time.

Aimee Bruder of Birmingham will compete in the games, which will be held in London starting in late August after the Summer Olympics.

Participants include elite athletes with a variety of disabilities.

Bruder was nominated to the U.S. swimming team after her performance at the U.S. trials last weekend in Bismark, N.D.

She had a personal best time of 101.9 in the 50-meter backstroke.

Bruder is returning to the Lakeshore Foundation training site on Tuesday.

She also competed in the 2008 Paralympic Games in Beijing.
