In this Sept. 6, 2017 photo, Mark Kedrowski looks over a framed Certificate of Participation from the 1999 Olympic Trials in his White Bear Lake, Minn. home. In 1999, he qualified for the U.S. Olympic Trials in windsurfing. Kedrowski, 46, was nearly killed in 2010 when the plane he was piloting crashed shortly after takeoff from the Lake Elmo airport. Kedrowski, who said the plane was losing power before the crash, sued the designer of the plane's fuel pump, Lycoming Engines, and its manufacturer, Kelly Aerospace Power Systems. A jury awarded him $27.7 million in the case, which was then overturned by a judge. Kedrowski has filed an appeal with the Minnesota Court of Appeals. (Jean Pieri /Pioneer Press via AP)
