From Benchwarmer to Olympic Record Holder and Business Champion
How Ruben Gonzalez Relied on Perseverance and Courage to Snag His Dreams
In high school and college, Ruben Gonzalez displayed hardly a lick of athletic talent. Yet he dreamed of becoming an Olympian and being counted among the elite athletes of the world.
That he did.
From benchwarmer to record holder, Ruben made courage and perseverance his mantra, and went on to become the only Olympic athlete ever to compete in four Olympic games in four different decades – most recently in the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, at age 47.
These days Ruben is a much-in-demand corporate speaker and author, translating his strategies for success from the icy luge track to the fast-paced, often icy business and career world.
Reputation coach and host Dean Rotbart recently visited with Ruben at his home near the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. Hear Dean’s gold-medal report this week on Monday Morning Radio.
