Former Speedskating Champion Heiden Is Staying Close to the Ice

The New York Times reports from Murray, Utah. Dr. Eric Heiden is working with Olympic Speed Skater, J.R. Celski in an effort to try to increase the athlete’s range of motion after a devastating crash caused a considerable amount of blood loss from a seven-inch wound to his thigh.

Celski feels like he is in good hands as Heiden is a five-time gold medalist in the same sport. Celski states that he values the opinion of a former athlete, especially one that is an Orthopedic Surgeon.
