About this title


Once timesaving innovations gave Americans leisure time, the golden age of sports emerged.

Enter Gene Oberst. Born with a disability, it took a haphazard event involving a stray javelin to make the entire world, and Gene himself, realize he was more than a bookworm-he was a natural-born athlete.

Growing up in a Twain-like, Ohio River town, the ideals of his large, self-sustaining family and their dedication to educate themselves fed Gene's persistent and diligent nature.

That determination led him to play college football for the national championship, Notre Dame team under legendary coach Knute Rockne with the Gipper and perhaps the most renowned backfield of the century. Then he went on to the highest achievement for athletes-the Olympics.

Including fascinating stories taken directly from Gene's Olympic journal, this biography offers a firsthand, behind-the-scenes look at one of the most persistent and innovative athletes of the 1900s and the other pioneering athletes and iconic coaches who shared in his success, and led the way to football’s glorious future and America’s fascination with the Olympics.

Covering the journeys Gene's ancestors took during their emigration to America from Germany to Gene's time journeying to the epic Chariots of Fire Olympics in Paris, follow the story of the miraculous and obstacle-defying life of American Olympian Gene Oberst.

About the Author:

In his third book, author Robert D. Oberst takes a biographical look at his father, Olympic medalist, college football champion, and All-American Gene “Kentuck” Oberst.

Prior to this biographical work, Oberst penned his first two books, 2020 Web Vision: How the Internet Will Revolutionize Future Homes, Business, and Society and The Financial Time Machine: Predicting Our Economic Future, in which he analyzed the past to correctly project the occurrences in the future of the Internet and the stagnant American economy.

Oberst earned a BS in operations research from Miami University, along with an MBA in policy and organizational behavior from Case Western Reserve University. He has been a management consultant to three dozen Fortune 500 companies, a communications manager and regional systems practice manager for a global consulting firm.
