Biography

Peter Vidmar is a powerful and entertaining speaker at corporate meetings and trade shows. With over two decades of experience helping people throughout the country to realize their own potential, he does much more than just speak about his experiences. In his inspiring, humorous, and energetic presentations, he actually performs world-class gymnastics on the pommel horse to drive home his message of Risk, Originality and Virtuosity (ROV)--and discusses how they apply to success in business and in life. His message brings something unique and refreshing to the corporate arena.

Mr. Vidmar is the highest scoring American gymnast in Olympic history. The winner of numerous national and international titles, he finished his successful career at the 1984 Olympic Games. As the USA men's gymnastics team captain, he led his teammates to America's first team gold medal with their stunning upset victory over the defending world champions, the People's Republic of China. He went on to win the silver medal in the individual all-around competition (the first American to have ever won an Olympic All-Around medal), and with a perfect score of 10, he captured the gold medal on the pommel horse.

Peter Vidmar continues to contribute to the Olympic movement today. He is the Chairman of the Board of USA Gymnastics, the national governing body of gymnastics in the United States. He has served as the Co-Chairman of the US Olympic Committee Summer Sports Summit, an annual series of workshops designed to prepare America's medal hopefuls to win gold in future Olympics. He also serves as a USOC Olympic Ambassador, helping to prepare all of America's athletes on working with the media and to represent the United States with character and respect.

For many years, Mr. Vidmar has also worked as the gymnastics commentator for CBS Sports and ESPN. He continues to work as a journalist, broadcaster, and corporate spokesperson at each summer Olympics. He has served on the President's Council on Physical Fitness & Sports, the Executive Board of the United States Olympic Committee, and the Executive Committee of USA Gymnastics. He was appointed by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to serve as the Vice Chair of the California Governor's Council on Physical Fitness & Sports, and is the Vice President of the Southern California Committee for the Olympic Games.

Peter Vidmar is one of only three athletes inducted into the US Olympic Hall of Fame twice; first as an individual, then as a member of the historic 1984 USA men's gymnastics team. He is also the author of Risk, Originality, and Virtuosity: The Keys to a Perfect 10.
