A highly accomplished competitive gymnast as a teenager, Kate Nye may have envisioned herself winning an Olympic medal for a sparkling floor routine or an amazing vault. But here’s Nye in Tokyo with a silver medal around her neck ... for weightlifting.

How did that happen?

On this episode of In The Village, Nye tells host Elizabeth Beisel how a knee injury at 16 coaxed her to transition from a gymnast to a CrossFit athlete, where she found her “passion for lifting heavy things.” Fast forward a few years and she's a medal-winning Olympic weightlifter.
