Marilyn King is a two-time Olympian in the grueling five event Pentathlon. Her 20-year athletic career includes five national titles and a world record. An automobile accident rendered her unable to train physically for her third Olympic Team. Using only mental training techniques she placed second at the Olympic trials for the 1980 Moscow Games.
Leaving her head coaching position at the University of California, Berkeley Marilyn founded Beyond Sports in 1981 to explore the field of exceptional human performance. Focusing in the areas of business, education and peace, over the past 30 years Marilyn’s techniques have been incorporated by Fortune 100 companies seeking to empower employees, embrace change and provide global leadership. Marilyn has also presented at over 200 national and international education conferences with academicians and researchers who are designing schools of the future. Her most pioneering work, a joint Russian-American venture called the Peace Team prompted two invitations to speak at the United Nations.
