Welcome fellow Californian :hatoff:

 

Thank you! and yes a Californian but also a transplanted :CAN in California!

 

This is a fantastic site.  I love how it is formatted and it clearly has a ton of information and opinions!   I want to let everyone know the reasons I'm here.

 

I've been an Olympic junkie since watching the ABC Network TV coverage of the '68 Mexico City Games.  The vivid memories I have of Tommy Smith/John Carlos/Peter Norman stories, USA long jumper Bob Beamon crumbling to his knees in disbelief after landing a jump over 29' and USA swimmer Debbie Meyer winning gold in the 200/400/800 freestyle events.  It is a passion that has stayed with me through all the summer and winter games to date.

 

Because of my passion, I have begun producing a short story documentary series based on (living) Olympians.  These documentary stories feature Olympians who were not necessarily medal winners or in the limelight, but Olympians with amazing, inspiring and compelling stories.  My series is titled Beyond Bronze, Silver and Gold.  I have completed filming of two Olympian stories and hope to begin post-production in August.  Once these are completed I will be seeking distribution, in hopes of continuing to bring more of these wonderful stories to a screen.

 

I am constantly in research mode, digging to unearth these amazing untold stories.  I have identified quite a few, which will require much more research, but I am always on the hunt.  My series is open to winter, summer and para Olympians and open to stories of Olympians from all included Olympic countries and Olympic events.  Should you know of an untold inspiring story of a living and deserving Olympian, please don't be shy.  I'd love to chat with you.

 

Thank you again and really looking forward to my time here on Totallympics!

Welcome to the forum from a fellow Canadian!

 

I just read your bio on your site, and it's very cool to see that you represented Canada in 1976 in Montreal. It's awesome to have an Olympian in our midst posting on the forum!

Thanks ofan!  Happy to still be a Canuck.  I had the honor to represent Canada on the Canadian Olympic water polo team

9th place and multiple wins at home isn’t too bad :champion:.  I never got to ask an Olympic athlete this before, but: What does it feel like to compete and participate in the Olympics?

I think Afghanistan is not his nation and it's the default one if you do not set a nation. I guess @lotsip is from the US ? ;)
