The 2020 Tokyo Olympics might be cancelled, but an Olympian’s heart burns as bright as the legendary Olympic torch. Chad Hedrick is an Olympic 5000m Ice Speed Skating Legend. In 2006, at the Turin Olympic Games, Chad received the FIRST GOLD MEDAL for the USA! What makes this accomplishment more impressive than that is he did not grow up skating on the ice. Picture your favorite roller rink and that one kid that was faster than any other, that is Chad.
This Texas boy who could inline roller skate better than any person in the world decided to take his skills to the ice. He traded roller skates for blades of glory. But this is not the story that defines Chad. The real story is what happened moments after he grabbed the Gold. His life was forever changed, and not for obvious reasons.
Two words to describe this fascinating story: MEDAL CEREMONY
Tune in to hear how a tough Texan won Olympic Gold, yet discovered his true success off the ice.
