Countdown to Tokyo: Teamwork for gold

(KYMA, KECY/ NBC News) - Winning an Olympic gold can be a long and solitary battle, at times. But most Olympians will admit that it wouldn't mean nearly as much if they didn't have teammates to do it for.

It does not get much better than hearing it from some of America's best, who have been there and done that.

With another day down in the Countdown to Tokyo, we hear from Caeleb Dressel, Maggie Steffens, Julie Ertz, A'ja Wilson and Johnny Hooper on the importance and impact of teammates. Especially when traveling across the world to get it done.
