10,000 Hours: The Patience, Pain, and Pride it Takes to be an Olympian

They say an average Olympian puts in 10,000 hours of training in the four years leading up to an Olympic Games. If you add it up, that's like training every single hour of the day –­­ every day – for over a year. From broken fingers to punches to the face to stabbing yourself with a safety pin to relieve cramping muscles — in this one-hour national special, Canada's Olympians share their stories of training, tragedy, and triumph.
