Omni San Antonio Hotel at the Colonnade
Thanks to the awesome help of Sheri Ortiz and Dr. Ian Thompson, Jr., we have finally secured what is sure to be one of our best ASL speakers ever, Mr. Josh Davis. As most of you know, Josh is a native of San Antonio and a highly decorated Olympic Swimmer. As you will read in his bio and personal testament below, he is also no stranger to the CTRC.
Josh Davis made history by becoming the only man to win 3 Gold Medals at the 1996 Atlanta Centennial Olympic Games. Josh is now the fastest “old guy” in American Swimming. Before recently breaking the records in the freestyle for the 40+ category, Josh has been teaching and racing across America for the last 18 years. One of the most prolific swimming instructors in history, Josh has been the Director of the Mutual of Omaha BREAKOUT! Swim Clinic tour for the last 8 years and has led over 500 clinics in over 400 cities. Davis is also the founder of the Fastest Man in Texas SHOOTOUT! and the Olympic Trials TRAIN WITH A CHAMP CAMP. Josh’s career has been unique in that he has held national records at all levels, high school, college, American Records, a World Record and now multiple Masters records. Davis won 5 Olympic Medals over 2 Olympic Games, 1996 and 2000, and set the American Record in the 200m free and 200scm IM. He was elected captain of the USA team 4 years in a row from 1997 to 2000. Now living in Edmond, OK with his wife and 5 kids, Josh has been speaking at schools, youth groups and corporate settings about the foundations of excellence for 18 years. It is safe to say that no one loves researching and communicating peak performance more than Josh Davis. Be around Josh for just a little a while and you will want to go live better and louder than ever.
Josh is also no stranger to the CTRC. In his words, Josh says, “The CTRC in San Antonio has had a big impact on my family. My dad, Mike Davis, was proud a member of the leadership and fundraising staff at CRTC in the early 2000′s. During my Mom’s, Joan Davis’s, 3 year battle with cancer from 2010 to 2012, CTRC was an invaluable source of hope- (hope that we were getting the best care possible) and compassion (that every patient is treated with kindness and understanding.)”
Please mark your calendars now for this exciting venue as it will surely be a sold out event. More news about the raffle, table reservation and sponsorship opportunities to be announced soon. Once again, we’re off to a great and exciting start for ASL 2016!
