You're Still A Champion To US, Chris
Nineteen months after receiving a liver transplant, the amazing Chris Klug returned to the slopes and brought home the bronze medal in snowboarding at the 2002 Olympic Games. Chris tried to return to the team for a shot in Torino, but didn't qualify and had his appeal turned down. He's not given up hope for another shot, in 2010.
Since his transplant, Chris has done a great deal of work to promote the issue of organ donation in his native Colorado. Check out his website.
Chris, even though you're not going for the Gold this year, you're still a champion to us!
