MEDAL QUEST | MEDAL QUEST AT THE GAMES | "When the crowd got louder, it fueled me." | PBS

Duration: 03:37

Cyclist Allison Jones knew she wanted to get to the London Paralympics, even if she had to buy her own ticket and come as a spectator. Instead, she made Team USA and, racing on the first day of the Games, she won America's first 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.
