Minnesotans, from the Arrowhead Region in the heart of the Midwest, have long been known for their humble nature and work ethic, and as such have long taken great pride in their athletics.

Minnesota Gold features compelling stories told by fifty-seven Minnesota athletes participating in the Olympics, World Championships, and World Cups from 1948 – 2014. As they pursued their dreams and persevered to compete in the greatest international competitions, these diverse athletes represented their state with dignity and brought pride to sports fans in all regions of Minnesota. With the 2016 Olympics approaching, interest in Minnesota’s historical role in the Games is enthusiastic.

Author Patrick “Packy” Mader presents an engaging and unique program as he shares the memorable conversations he had with these remarkable men and women who honored their sport, their state, and their country on the world stage over the last seven decades. Discover true Minnesota gold!
