Swimmer Jessica Long won 3 gold medals at the Athens Paralympics at age 12. Then she won 4 gold medals, a silver and a bronze in Beijing at age 16, setting 3 new world records -- and she still felt she'd failed. In this frank video, Long explains the pressures she felt as a teenager, and how she had to fall in love with swimming again.

MEDAL QUEST offers an unprecedented look into these high-stake games and the athletes that play them, and is produced for PBS by WGBH Boston in association with the US Olympic Committee and the International Paralympic Committee. More at: http://pbs.org/medalquest‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬
