Kentucky to the World

Life of an Olympic Champion

57:02 | #108

You're not even 25 years old, and the pressure of the world is on your shoulders. How do you handle it? And what happens after you succeed? We explore these questions in a conversation with Louisville's own Olympic Gold Medalists in swimming Mary T. Meagher and Kelsi Worrell Dahlia. Known as "Madame Butterfly," Mary T. Meagher successfully competed in the 1984 Olympics. UofL graduate Kelsi Worrell Dahlia is a world record holder and won gold in swimming at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. They discuss how Kentucky impacted their path to success and how to navigate life when it seems like your greatest accomplishment is behind you. WHAS 11's Whitney Harding moderates.
