Inspired by watching Mark Spitz win seven gold medals at the 1972 Games, Brian Goodell envisioned himself on the medal stand. Like running a movie in his mind, he could hear the national anthem and feel the weight of the gold medal as it was placed around his neck.The hard work paid off. At 17, Goodell won gold in the 400-meter and 1,500-meter freestyle events at the 1976 Olympics in Montreal, setting world records in both. By 1979, when Sports Illustrated profiled him as the top American swimmer, he was 20 and primed to be the next Mark Spitz at the 1980 Olympics. Then President Jimmy Carter, who, in response to the Soviet Union's invasion of Afghanistan, decided the U.S. would boycott the 1980 Games in Moscow. In an instant, all the years of preparation were lost. Hear what he is doing today to inspire others.
