Six-time Olympic gold medalist Amy Van Dyken-Rouen has been hospitalized and is in ICU in Scottsdale, Arizona following an all-terrain vehicle accident, according to the Arizona Republic.

Van Dyken-Rouen, who is married to former Denver Broncos punter Tom Rouen, is in the intensive care unit of Scottsdale Healthcare's Osborn Medical Center. According to David Van Dyken, Amy's brother, she was airlifted to the hospital following an injury in the town of Show Low, Arizona, about 170 miles from Scottsdale.

Van Dyken won four of her golds, in 50m freestyle, 100m butterfly, 4×100m freestyle relay, and 4×100m medley relay, at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, making her the most decorated athlete of those Games. She won two more golds in the relay events at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney.
