Discipline is one key to athletic success. Whether it's hitting the batting cage to better their swing or shaving two minutes off their running time, the key is to keep practicing.

Then, you throw in the hope of heading to the Olympics. What happens next? One family is sharing their experience with this in a new book called, "Go, Gwen, Go".

Elizabeth and Nancy Jorgensen, sister and mother of the 2016 Olympic Triathlon Olympic Champion Gwen Jorgensen, and co-authors of the book, share her inspirational story while teaching others how to achieve their athletic goals.
