The TSA admitted agents made a mistake when a six-time Olympic gold medalist got a full-body pat down at Denver International Airport.

Amy Van Dyken-Rouen has been using a wheelchair since an ATV accident two years ago.

In an Instagram post, she said she was searched incorrectly, even though she has TSA Pre-check status. People with that designation are considered part of a trusted group and can go through an expedited screening process.

In addition to the full-body search, Van Dyken-Rouen said an agent humiliated her and was rude to her.
