Emily Cook is the United States’ best hope of winning Olympic gold tonight in the freestyle aerials final, but it has been anything but easy for her to get to this point.  Back on New Year’s Eve in 2002, Cook qualified for the Games in Salt Lake City, but soon after, she suffered serious injuries in both her feet and she missed the 2002 Games and couldn’t compete on the World Cup circuit for three years.  But now she’s back and healthy, and ready to win.  Check her out on NBC’s “The Today Show,” and make sure to cheer her on tonight!
