Press - My Life in the Public's Eye

Megan Henry Press

A few short years ago I discovered pulmonary embolisms (blood clots) in my lungs and was forced to take time off from training to fight for my life. After intensive rehab, I got back out on the ice. Today, I am blessed to represent my country through the US Army’s World Class Athlete Program (WCAP) as the nation’s only Skeleton athlete-soldier. In 2015, I represented the United States in the Skeleton World Championships. Now, I’m dedicated to my goal of representing the United States in the 2018 Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
Below are samplings of local and national media pieces about my life as a survivor, activist, and world-class athlete:
