Back from the dead: The Olympian who beats brain damage to race for Hyundai

In over 30 years of talking to racing drivers, I’ve suspected that a few of them have suffered a brain injury along the way but, until now, I’ve never heard one openly speak about it. Not one who isn’t retired, at least.

2022 Winter Olympians Describe Their Near-Death Experiences:
Aaron “A.J.” Muss, American Snowboarder

What was supposed to be a routine shoulder surgery turned into a rare and life-threatening postoperative complication for 27-year-old Aaron A.J. Muss.

In 2014, Muss dislocated his shoulder after his arm got caught in a gate. The surgery, which was scheduled in April 2015, went according to plan until he was discharged from the hospital and went into postoperative pulmonary edema, causing his lungs to fill with fluid.
