Road to Gold, by Ben Peterson
We are privileged to serve our client Ben Peterson and Camp of Champs, the wrestling ministry he founded and directs. Ben wrestled for more than 16 years, coached on a collegiate level for 28 years, and has directed Camp of Champs for more than 40 years. We have read his autobiography and found Ben's dedication to the sport and his faith to be inspiring. If you are looking for a good story we highly recommend Ben's Road to Gold.
In Road to Gold, Ben shares the lessons he learned throughout his upbringing and how they led him to achieve Olympic victory. Ben states a key element of his youth was the consistency of his parents. He was encouraged to read the Bible every day from an early age, which he now describes as the most stabilizing habit in his life. Throughout his story Ben also emphasizes the importance of confidence, solid goals, hard work, and consistency. These qualities helped Ben throughout his life and wrestling career, from learning the sport in high school to earning a gold medal in the 1972 Olympics. He has since dedicated himself to helping young athletes become successful not only in their sport, but also in life by teaching them these qualities.
