Minnesotan Katrina Radke didn't medal at the Olympics, but she's still got a chance to take gold in one of TV's longest-running series.

Radke, who finished fifth in the 200-meter butterfly event during the 1988 Seoul Games, will compete in the 35th edition of CBS's "Survivor," which will be set in Fiji.

According to the insidesurvivor.com website, Radke, 46, currently works as a sport psychologist, therapist, and professor at California's Foothill College, but considers Excelsior her home. She is married to former Olympics swim coach Ross Gerry.

She is the author of "Be Your Best Without Stress: It’s Not About The Medal," which chronicles her battle against Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction Syndrome.

The season premieres at 7 p.m. Sept. 27 on WCCO, Ch. 4
