Eleven-Time Olympic Medalist Champion Swimmer
FEE RANGE: $15,000–$25,000 [FEE NOTE]
TRAVELS FROM: California
Mark Spitz is one of the greatest living sports legends and most remembered by his astonishing win of seven gold medals at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich. Until the 2008 Games, Mark held the record for the most Olympic Gold medals during one Olympics by a single Olympiad. Between 1965 and 1972, Spitz won a total of 11 Olympic medals: nine gold, one silver, and one bronze. As his focus on swimming slowly began to fade, he started a successful real estate company in Beverly Hills and in the 80’s Mark was one of the largest residential real estate developers in Southern California and was involved with an 8-figure apartment development in Hawaii. As the real estate market started slowing down, he became a stock broker and now concentrates in private equity. In 2008, Mark released a self-published book, The Extraordinary Life of an Olympic Champion. The book gives insight from Spitz himself, his coaches and competitors and shares his journey from his early years, to his success as a college athlete at Indiana University and his lucrative Olympic career.
