I first interviewed Matt Emmons before he won Olympic gold. And before he shot at the wrong target in his second event, costing him another gold but precipitating a meeting with the woman he would go on to marry. I interviewed him again in Beijing, after he won another medal and had another strange miss on his last shot. He returned to win another medal in London, and he’s in great form heading into Rio.
And along the way, he beat thyroid cancer.
One of the most interesting, upbeat people I’ve ever met.
