Millions of Americans remember Mike Eruzione as the captain of the 1980 US Olympic hockey team that beat the odds to win the gold medal in Lake Placid. It was his decisive winning goal that beat the Soviet team and stunned the world.
Following the team's triumph, Eruzione went on to broadcast for network television. He broadcast Olympic commentary from Sarajevo, Los Angeles, and Calgary for ABC, and from Albertville and Lillehammer for CBS. In preparation for the 1994 Winter Olympic Games, Eruzione joined the Olympic Hockey Tour to promote the American team. His role in this memorable moment in history and the lessons taken from it make him a respected and irreplaceable sports speaker for any event.
