Paralympic Swimmer Tucker Dupree: "You Have To Pick Between What's Right And What's Easy"

Paralympic swimmer Tucker Dupree lost his eyesight when he was 17 years old. It was then that he realized he had a choice: do what's right and make the most of his disability, or do what's easy and sit on the sidelines. Four Paralympic medals later, it's safe to say that Dupree made the correct choice.

Keeping him motivated to train every day is his support team at home. His family, friends and the country at large are all a part of his "team behind the team" and make it all the more rewarding for him to put on the Team USA uniform and stand on the podium.
