MEDAL QUEST | Meet the Athletes - Swimming | Rudy Garcia-Tolson: "I'm enjoying every moment." | PBS

Duration: 03:14

Swimmer Rudy Garcia-Tolson looks at the Paralympics as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Garcia-Tolson has been swimming competitively since he was a young boy. He knows how hard athletes must work and talks about what makes it all worthwhile -- his teammates and "getting one inch closer to a gold medal." 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.
