Six-time Olympic gold medalist swimmer Amy Van Dyken-Rouen may have been badly injured in an ATV accident, but she is “not afraid” of the hard road to recovery that lies ahead.

“This is a new challenge, and I’m taking it head-on,” Van Dyken-Rouen told Matt Lauer on TODAY Friday. “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.”
