Lessons from the Dark Horse


Two Olympic Games dark horses – American hockey player Mark Johnson and Canadian alpine skier Kerrin Lee-Gartner – know the benefits of being an unsuspecting athlete on the cusp of victory. And now they both give back to the sports that brought them such success.

Miracle on ice

Mark Johnson was a member of the 1980 US Olympic hockey team in Lake Placid. He was a key scorer in the tournament – especially in the game against the Soviet Union. That game, of course, is now known as the “Miracle on Ice”. The US team went on to win a gold medal by beating Finland. While the US victory over the Soviet Union wasn’t a complete miracle in Johnson’s mind, he said the team definitely wasn’t expecting a medal that year.

“You look at what the Swedes had. You look at what the Czechs had. Our team’s task at hand was going to be a difficult one just to get into the medal round,” said Johnson. “It was sort of a given that the Russians had it.”
