One of the most admired Olympic athletes of all time, Mary Lou Retton inspires us with the characteristics of real-life champions including sacrifice, dedication, attitude and hard work.
The epitome of positive energy and dream-realizing potential, Mary Lou Retton is a world-class champion with a winning smile and winning style that are both infectious and uplifting. After taking home the Olympic All-Around gold medal in gymnastics, Retton became the first American woman to win an Olympic gold medal in gymnastics. Additionally, her five medals were the most won by any athlete at the 1984 Olympics. Beginning her presentation with footage from her awe-inspiring performance at the Olympics, she shows audiences how they, too, can perform at peak levels to achieve the professional and personal success they desire. Still one of America’s most beloved athletes, Retton was named Sports Illustrated Sportswoman of the Year, was the first woman to appear on the Wheaties box and was named one of America’s Top Ten “Most Admired” public figures.
