Jessica Long is a Paralympic swimmer who trains at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. We had a chance to visit with her following a recent training session at the pool at the OTC. Not only does Long hold 20 world records in her sport, during the 2012 Paralympic Games in London she won 5 gold medals, 3 silver medals and 1 bronze.
