Six-time U.S. champion and ex-gymnast Emily Cook grew up in suburban Boston and never let go of a dream to compete in the Olympics. Sidelined by injury after making the 2002 Olympic Team, Cook missed two World Cup seasons while rehabilitating her badly injured feet. She returned in the summer of 2004, competed in the winter of 2005 on the World Championships Team and finally achieved her Olympic dream at the 2006 games in Italy. She battled back to the top again in 2010, earning her second trip to the Olympics (finishing in 11th place) after missing the last two World Cup qualifiers because of a deeply bruised heel.
Cook earned two more World Cup podiums in the 2012-13 season, bringing her career podium tally to a competitive nine. After capping the season ranked second overall in the aerials rankings, she’s coming into the Olympic season experienced but still hungry.
