Guest Kaya Turski

Currently a top ranked competitor in the world by the Association of Freeskiing Professionals (AFP) in the women’s slopestyle discipline, Montreal native Kaya Turski is a big gold medal hopeful for the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games.

Only weeks ago, though, she sustained a serious injury -- a torn ACL in her left knee. The normal recovery time facing an elite athlete from such a serious injury takes about six to nine months. That would’ve meant no Olympics for Turski,  the 2013 world ski slopestyle champion and three-time X-Games title holder.

However, Turski met with a number of very talented physicians, and decided on a progressive surgery plan involving a synthetic ligament paired with a cadaver, operated by Dr. Litchfield out of London ON, Canada. She has just come out of a very successful surgery and she's determined not to let this minor setback ruin her Olympic dreams. 

She'll talk about her journey while in the red chair.
