Speed & Focus Expert
The key elements in corporate culture today require a balance of mental toughness, a passion for excellence, and a dedication to an enjoyable journey. An authority on speed and focus, Vince Poscente knows the mind set needed to meet those demands.
During the 1992 Olympic Winter Games in Albertville, France, Vince Poscente raced to a Canadian national record of 135 miles per hour (216.7 km/h) on skis. Even more astonishing, at the age of 25, Vince Poscente had never ski raced before. Poscente went from a recreational skier to the Olympic finals in just 4 years.
On July 12, 1998, Vince Poscente continued his old adage "try everything at least once" and competed in his first Hi-Tek Adventure Race. The 3-person team runs, mountain bikes and kayaks among other exciting and unknown little surprises along the way. As the temperatures soared to 105 degrees at Cedar Hill State Park in Dallas, Poscente's team went on to survive the race and finish a stellar 14th out of the 198 teams that finished the race. "Mighty Mo" Monaghan and Randy Wallace literally pushed Vince along...a true team effort, very impressive. What a way to spend a balmy summer day, eh.
Once bitten, Vince Poscente along with "Fast Fred" Seipp and "Might Mo," travelled to Los Angeles for the competition at Castaic Lake on October 24th for the National Finals. Competing against 259 teams, they emerged 45th! We are proud and again impressed with the effort they put forth to punish their bodies and test their capabilities. Again, another pleasant way to spend the day.
