YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY/NBC News) - In today's 'Countdown to Tokyo,' surfing is being added to the summer games and a 2012 gold medalist shares his story of building a family since that special moment.
Did you know surfing is an Olympic sport this summer? Well, it's true and a Florida teen is riding a wave of success headed into the games in Tokyo.
19-year-old, Caroline Marks from Melbourne Beach, Florida, is one of the sport's top stars. She won her third career World Surf League title on Tuesday in Australia.
When Marks was 16, she became the youngest surfer ever to qualify for the tour and she is ranked second in the World Surf League and has already qualified for the Olympics.
And David Boudi had a life-changing moment when he won gold at the 2012 Olympics in London, but that wasn't the last life-changing moment.
It turns out that having three kids in five years can be just as harrowing as diving off an Olympic platform.
