TOUGH TALKS – The World’s Greatest Athlete
with Dan O’Brien

The Greatest Athlete in the World! That’s the title our guest earned himself when he won the Olympic Gold Medal for the Decathlon in Atlanta in 1996. We have Dan O’Brien in the Tough Talks studio today and we get to pick the brain of one of history’s greatest athletes on things like mental preparation and how to convert “failure” (epic failure) into, well, literally, gold.

Go search YouTube for Dan and Dave 1992 and you can watch the hilarious Reebok commercials they made to hype up the battle that was to be had in Barcelona between America’s top two decathletes. It didn’t unfold the way anyone expected. Or wanted.
