Kassidy Cook used to tell her mother she wanted to be in the “Balimpics” when she was a child. After missing qualifying for the 2012 London Olympics by one spot, she suffered a string of injuries and needed major reconstructive shoulder surgery, a second shoulder surgery and a knee surgery. She rehabilitated her injuries and earned a second quota spot for the U.S. at a qualification event in Feb. 2016.
