Short track speedskater J.R. Celski is lucky to be alive. Here is his shocking journey from Olympic hopeful five months before the Vancouver Olympics, when he nearly severed his femoral artery and thought he was going to die, to overcoming all the odds and demonstrating nothing short of sheer focus, determination and the desire to compete.

What’s even more brilliant after hearing his comeback story, is to watch J.R.’s life in reverse as depicted in this Ameritrade commercial.
