WATCH: Kayleigh Gilchrist Aims for Golden Repeat at Tokyo 2020

Kaleigh Gilchrist had the Olympic pedigree well before her selection to the 2016 U.S. Women’s Water Polo Team. She and her teammates ended a dominant tournament with a gold-medal performance in the finals against Italy. And while it appears she may be finished with water polo she’s still gunning to return to Tokyo 2020, this time a member of the USA Surf team.

Gilchrist gets the star treatment from Cronkite News in this post-Rio feature.
