An Incredible Olympic Story

He wasn’t a gifted athlete. He didn’t take up the sport of luge until he was 21. Against all odds, four years later he was competing in the Winter Olympics.

At the age of 47 he was competing against 20-year-olds in the Vancouver Olympics.

He takes people’s excuses away. He’s proof that ordinary people can achieve extraordinary things if they will follow a few simple steps.

 “Adventure, determination, danger, perseverance – this is one unbelievable success story! 
Motivating and inspiring!” 


  – Stephen Covey
