Oldest Winter Olympian Ever at 63 Years of Age
1988, 1992, 2002, 2010, 2026

A Hundred-Year-Old Record

The oldest person to ever compete in the Winter Olympics was Carl August Kronlund, a Swedish curler who was 58 at the 1924 Chamonix Winter Olympics.

Ruben is training for the 2026 Milan / Cortina Winter Olympics. He’s sliding better than ever and his coach says he can do it.


Why Is Ruben Doing This?

Ruben hopes that people of all ages will be inspired to pursue their goals and dreams. Together, we can show the world that no matter how old you are, you can still make your life an adventure.

At the age of 61, Ruben is sliding better than ever.

People Relate to Ruben Because He’s a Common Man Who Accomplished Some Uncommon Things

Ruben competed in four Winter Olympics in spite of not being a great athlete. All his life when kids were picking teams in P.E., Ruben was always the last kid picked.

This is critically important, because your audience will relate to Ruben much more than they would relate to someone like Michael Jordan or Tiger Woods.

If someone like Michael Jordan or Tiger Woods spoke to your people, subconsciously your audience would think, “That stuff will work for THEM, but it won’t work for me.”

However, after Ruben’s program, people think, “If THAT guy could make it to the Olympics, then I can do anything!”

Ruben’s an approachable keynote speaker.

When Ruben shares his Olympic story he’s transparent, open and vulnerable. He shares what it felt like when he was struggling, and how he got himself to stay in the game long enough to learn the skills he would need to succeed.

He makes a powerful human connection with his audiences. The most common comment he gets after his presentations is “You’re so real, you’re so genuine.”

Ruben’s incredible story takes people’s excuses away. People actually buy into what Ruben says because they can relate to him.

Isn’t that what you want? For your people to start applying some proven success principles so they can be more productive and get better results?
