Ruben Gonzalez is a four-time Winter Olympian, who can not ski or skate.

He was never 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 became the oldest person to compete internationally in the sport of luge.

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