Mark Schultz is considered by many as the greatest pure athlete ever to step on a mat.
After rising to the pinnacle of the world of wrestling with NCAA, US Open, World, and Olympic titles, Mark Schultz’s world crashed down around him after his brother Dave – his role model and wrestling partner – was murdered. Mark had to learn how to come back from the brink and overcome this tragedy to achieve success on the mat once again.
A Fighter’s Inspiration
As a speaker, Mark shares hard won life lessons and offers audiences the tools to overcoming barriers and tips on how to sacrifice through any hardship.
“Don’t let Mark’s intimidating figure scare you. He is one of the most humor filled persons I’ve met. He’ll leave you in stitches while driving home his message of perseverance, pain, hopelessness, loss, regret, sorrow, and triumph in one of the most amazing stories I’ve ever heard. Laced with subtle humor Mark shares his message with two pockets of laughs. He is well worth the price. If you’re looking for a presentation without humor, don’t invite Mark.”
