Overcoming Adversity & Creating A Life Worth Living With Olympian Tanner Gers
After losing control of his car in an auto accident, Tanner lost his sight at age 21. The biggest tragedy in Tanner’s life wasn’t losing his sight. It was not living life and taking every day by the horns like he does today.
Since that day, Tanner graduated from college, is the 2011 Para Pan American gold medalist, 2012 US Paralympic trials gold medalist, 2012 Paralympian, and a 2013 World Championship team member, 2-time National Beep Baseball Association World Series Offensive MVP, 4-time Offensive All-Star, published author, public speaker, and when he’s not doing that stuff, he dabbles in business. His latest project, which is launching this summer, is The Athlete Summit, an online event designed to help athletes and coaches achieve greatness in sport and in life.
