Injured Olympian Amy Van Dyken going to Denver-area rehab hospital

DENVER (AP) -- Olympic champion swimmer Amy Van Dyken-Rouen plans to undergo rehabilitation for her severed spine at a suburban Denver hospital.

Van Dyken-Rouen planned to transfer sometime next week to Craig Hospital, which specializes in spinal cord injuries. Her husband, former Denver Broncos punter Tom Rouen, told the Denver Post that she may still need to undergo a second surgery at the Scottsdale, Ariz. hospital where she has been since she was injured in an all-terrain vehicle crash Friday night.

Tom Rouen says the family doesn't know if she will be paralyzed, saying "we're going to take it day by day."

Van Dyken-Rouen remains upbeat in her Twitter posts.
