He is a former Olympic athlete, and completed his graduate and post-doctoral work at the University of Massachusetts, where he received a PhD in Exercise and Computer Science. He has published numerous scientific papers, founded an independent laboratory devoted to biomechanical research relating to human performance, and was chairman of the U.S. Olympic Biomechanical Committee.
The Discus Thrower and his Dream FactoryPublished on Saturday, December 15, 2012 by Gideon Ariel
My biography is now available online.
Dreams have no boundaries if you follow them. Imagination, luck, and hard work are necessary ingredients for success. But, if your mind bubbles, creates, and breathes life into dreams, then dreams can become real. The mind is the factory which forges the dreams. This is how sports and fantasy can combine to create real life. Dreams can come true if you try.
