Gevvie Stone (@gevgevs) won a Silver Medal in Single Sculling at the 2016 Rio Olympics. Interestingly, Stone is also a Physician, graduating from Tufts School of Medicine while also training for the Olympics. She also competed in the single sculls at the 2012 Summer Olympics, where she placed 7th overall. In college while at Princeton, she won the women's Championship Singles race at the Head of the Charles Regatta six times.

In this clip, Stone reflects on her challenge of being in the medical field, studying, but also wanting to continue to train as an Olympic athlete. She explains that this path is not easy, and she had many people question her, but it is the support that pushed her through the journey.
