Gene and Dan
Canadian born Gene Kiniski, age 75 and Dan Delong, 28 of Scottish and Norwegian descent are best friends for several juxtaposed reasons. Gene has created a huge international reputation as a world champion professional wrestler. Dan has seriously played track, soccer and quite successfully quarter backed with the UBC Thunderbirds football team. Today, in their ageless friendship, they both encourage each other's passion for working out and staying in optimum mental and physical condition. Gene and Dan can see a definite parallel with one's athletic accomplishments in relation to an individual's personal attitude about life.
"We must be careful, because we have developed the fine art of deceiving ourselves," Gene say's. "Today, we all know what is wrong and when we look in the mirror, we clearly see the answers to our problems." Together, these body, mind and spirit conditioning partners also agree that each of us must be mentally tough and do the right thing, even when it hurts.
When we reach out and embrace our neighbors we see pictures that enhance everyday life in our own international community.
