HOUSTON, Jan. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- In a couple of weeks Ruben "Speedy" Gonzalez will be racing in the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Ruben will be racing against athletes who were not even born when he was competing in his first Winter Olympics back in 1988. Gonzalez will be hurtling down an icy chute at over 95 MPH in the Men's Luge.
Ruben isn't a gifted athlete. In fact, he was always the last kid picked for PE in school. He didn't take up the sport of luge until he was 21. Four years and a few broken bones later, he was competing in the Calgary Olympics, then Albertville, Salt Lake, and now Vancouver.
Inspired to compete in his 4th Olympiad after reading Jose Feliciano's book "The 2 Hour House," Gonzalez realizes that he is much older than any of the other athletes. "In fact," Gonzalez explains, "everyone thinks I'm a coach. No joke."
Ruben may not win a medal, but he might just make the cover of AARP.
-- Run with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain,
-- Climbed mountains,
-- Jumped out of a plane in South Africa,
-- Flown aerobatics in a WWII airplane over the Pacific,
-- and built libraries in Third World nations.
