Why would anybody want to jump on a sled and hurl himself down an icy mountain at over 80 miles per hour? At the age of 21, Ruben Gonzalez took up the sport of luge and started training for the Olympics.

He's also one of the most popular speakers in America. Ruben's best-selling book "The Courage to Succeed" has been translated into ten languages. Get ready to be inspired to go for the Gold.
