There's a lot you can do when you reach the peak of success in sport. For 2016 Olympic Gold Medalist Madison Kocian, the answer to the question of "what's next?" when she came off the podium was simple: "I just want to make a difference." 
In this short branded piece, we get a glimpse into life after Rio for Maddie. From studying to be a pediatrician, to being a friend her teammates can lean on, to advocating for childhood cancer patients, Maddie has truly transcended her athletic success to make the world a better place for those who need it most.
