In case you missed it, Olympic gold medalist Amy Van Dyken-Rouen appeared on NBC’s “Today” show this morning. Host Matt Lauer visited the swimmer, who suffered a severe back injury after crashing an ATV June 6, at Craig Hospital in Englewood, CO yesterday. Van Dyken-Rouen’s injury was so serious that prior to surgery to repair her severed spine, she and her husband Tom Rouen (a former Denver Broncos punter) said their goodbyes to each other.
