Ep REPLAY: The Lugeman, Ruben Gonzalez
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. At 55, after a seven-year break, he’s back on the International Luge Circuit on a quest to become the oldest person to ever compete in the Winter Olympics in Beijing 2022.
He takes people’s excuses away. He’s proof that ordinary people can achieve extraordinary things if they will follow a few simple steps.
