Speed skating: Olympian Cermak raises awareness about ascending aortic aneurysm condition
Chantel Cermak's ascending aortic aneurysm probably started growing when she was in her 20s and a member of the U.S. Olympic Speed Skating Team.
Cermak skated the 3,000-meter, 1,500-meter and 1,000-meter races for the United States during the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway. She just missed making the team by one spot in 1992 and in 1998.
