Legendary Olympic Gold Medalist

Mark Spitz is one of the greatest living sports legends and most remembered athletes of all-time. His astonishing win of 7 total Gold Medals at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich set a historic mark for most Gold Medals in a single Olympics. Following the ‘72 Games, Mark’s clout and charisma helped him become a pioneer for Olympic endorsements, working as a heralded spokesperson for a number of industry leading companies including Speedo and Schick Razors.

Olympic Legend

Between 1965 and 1972, Spitz won a total of 11 Olympic Medals: nine gold, one silver and one bronze. During those years he set 33 World records. He was voted “Athlete of the Century” in water sports and one of 6 “Greatest Olympians” by Sports Illustrated in 2000.

Entrepreneur

As his focus on swimming slowly began to fade, he became an entrepreneur. Mark started a successful real estate company in Beverly Hills and continued to capitalize on his success in a recording breaking way. In the 80’s, Mark was one of the largest residential real estate developers in Southern California and was involved with an 8-figure apartment development in Hawaii during this time as well. As the real estate market started slowing down, he shifted his focus to the stock market.

Book

In 2008, Mark released a self-published book The Extraordinary Life of an Olympic Champion. The book gives insight from Spitz himself, his coaches and competitors and shares his journey from his early years, to his success as a college athlete at Indiana University and his lucrative Olympic career.

Keynote Speaker

Nowadays, Mark travels the country as a highly sought-after motivational speaker for business conferences, sports forums and other special events.
