Emmy Award-winning TV show host and interviewer Aurea McGarry talks with former Olympic Speed Skater Kelly Gunther about her two-time brush with the GOLD! You won't believe her inspirational story and how she got the nickname THE COME BACK KID!!

Winter of 2010 when she arrived at the hospital, doctors were afraid to remove her skate — in case her broken foot came with it. Amid conversations about surgery, rehab, and possible amputation, they told the still Olympic hopeful that she’d probably never skate again.

Listen and find out if she ever did and the important lessons she learned along the brutal way.
