Rochester, N.Y. - Kids at the Golisano Children's Hospital got a visit of Olympic proportions Wednesday.
Olympic Gold Medalist Meghan Musnicki visited with sick children.
The Naples native won gold this summer as a member of the US Women's Eight Rowing Team.
Musnicki says she was hospitalized at Strong Hospital when she was younger because of an eating disorder. She says it will always hold a special place in her heart and she’s glad she can help cheer up other children who are battling illnesses.
"If I can make them happy or put a smile on their face because I know that it's not easy being up here and being sick and having to go through day in and day out in the hospital, so you know to maybe be a bright spot is very rewarding for me," said Musnicki.
Musnicki plans to become a nurse practitioner after her rowing career.
