Motivation Secrets of a Four-Time Olympian
Ruben has an incredible story. He was always the last kid picked to play sports in PE. When he was 21 years old he decided he wanted to compete in the next Winter Olympics. He lived in Houston at the time. Didn’t even know what snow looked like. He went to Lake Placid, took up the sport of luge and four years and a few broken bones later he was competing in the Calgary Olympics. He went on to become the first person to ever compete in four Winter Olympics each in a different decade.

As he jokingly says, “It doesn’t mean he’s good, it just means he’s old!” He competed in the Vancouver at the age of 47. Everybody thought he was a coach! But seriously, his story takes people’s excuses away because he’s an ordinary guy who did some extraordinary things.
