Amy Van Dyken-Rouen knows a thing or two about staying positive—no matter what the situation.
The six-time Olympic gold medalist swimmer was paralyzed in an ATV accident June 6, but as she told Matt Lauer exclusively on Today Friday, she's "not afraid" of the road ahead.
She attends physical therapy at Craig Hospital in Englewood, Colo., working on her rehabilitation every day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. "This is a new challenge, and I'm taking it head-on," said Amy, 41. "This is more than just for a gold medal, this is for my life; our life. And so, I'm here and I'm working as hard as I can for that."
