NOT THE SAME AS
Cut to the Bone.
Just months before the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, Team USA short-track speedskater J.R. Celski crashed at a trial race, gashing his left thigh to the bone with his own skate blade. After emergency surgery and 60 stitches, J.R. was admittedly shaken to the core. He didn’t know if he’d ever be able to skate again, much less heal in time to compete on behalf of Team USA at the Olympic Winter Games.
A Heroic Recovery.
Within weeks, J.R. began rehabilitation with his family by his side. He credits their unwavering support as the motivation he needed to not only recover in less than three months, but to also return to elite form. Winning two bronze medals for Team USA at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games only added to his remarkable comeback story.
