Stephen Heidenreich went from having a 90% chance of making the 1976 US Olympic Team to having a 5% chance to live, after he was hit by a drunk drive while training in Bloomington, Indiana.


Left with the mental faculty of a two-year old child, Stephen battled back to become a coach and special education teacher. His is an amazing story of the power of community, family commitment, persistence, and dedication.


As it turns out, he was a gold medal winner after all—just ask all the kids he taught and coached!
