What you'll do

You'll race an Olympic luge racer: me!
We’ll race against each other and the clock (just like in the Olympics) in a virtual luge racing video game called Sleigh Champion. Between each run I will tell you a few stories and show you the pro equipment I use, including my trusty Olympic luge sled. Along the way I may even throw in a couple of life lessons learnt from years of throwing myself down a perfectly good mountain on a tiny toboggan. If you emerge victorious, you’ll have earned lifelong bragging rights that you beat an Olympic racer at luge (well, sort of). You’ll also receive a certificate that will tell all the world of your historic and noble achievement. Racers ready?

I can vividly remember sitting on the couch watching the Calgary '88 Olympics as a kid and telling my mum that I was going to be an Olympic luge racer. I remember her reaction, “Those people are ridiculous!" She may have been right. I'm a two-time Olympian in the sport of Luge. We're not the best-known sport in the Olympic program, so along the way I want to educate people about this fast (150+ kph), demanding (5+ g-force), and downright awesome Olympic sport. I've spoken about my experiences to Fortune 500 companies and schools, and also perform regularly on the stand-up comedy circuit.

Our private group experience with Mark was so fun! He is a phenomenal storyteller and really tailored our conversation to fit the group of sports marketers in our session. Mark was warm and laid back, and even gave our group a few extra minutes beyond our scheduled time to finish answering some questions we had about luge and his experience. I would highly recommend spending time with Mark!

Attended this experience with coworkers and we had a great time! Mark was a very engaging host who gave great insights and stories about his time training and time at the Olympics. We learned a ton about luge as a sport and had some friendly competition in the process. Would highly recommend this experience!
