The whole Crosby diving thing turning into a girl/toughnessthing got me thinking of this recently:
Also...It's a secret Hayley Wickenheiser could no longer hide.
The Canadian women's hockey star helped Canada win gold at the Sochi Olympics despite playing with a broken foot.
The 35-year-old native of Shaunavon, Sask., was sporting a walking boot on her left foot at the Hockey Hall of Fame on Tuesday, where she was a guest speaker at the second annual Gatorade High Performance Hockey Summit.
"I've had a broken foot for about a year now so I'm trying to fix it," Wickenheiser said. "I'm wearing this boot so I can avoid having that surgery, hopefully.
"I knew it was broken at the time [of Olympics], we just found out it was a little more serious break than we thought. It was just managing the pain."
"My medical team was really good with treatments to keep the swelling down. I just did a lot of things on one leg and tried to minimize the pounding on my foot in order to be able to get through the games. Now I've had the chance to see where the damage is and with a couple of months rest I should be fine. I wasn't able to rest it before."
This isn't the first time Wickenheiser has endured pain. She played in the 2006 Olympics with a broken wrist but was still the tournament's top scorer and MVP.
