Olympic Gold Medalist Speaks at Regional Chamber Dinner

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.-- All eyes were on Tim Daggett Monday night. He was this year's keynote speaker and is one of the most "in demand" professional speakers in the country.

He's also an Olympic Gold Medalist in Gymnastics, a business owner, and an author. The Tri-Cities Regional Chamber staff thought he would be the perfect person to share his story of inner strength and motivation with all those in attendance.

The theme of Daggett's presentation is "Dare to Dream", something he says everyone should live by.

"In today's society we have a whole group of young people that don't believe that something great can happen to them and it can, but it all starts with a dream," he said.

Daggett says this was his first time in the Tri-Cities and has truly enjoyed his visit. On top of all his success, he's also an NBC Sports Commentator. We'll get a chance to see him commenting from Beijing at this year's Olympics.
