Mike Eruzione, Gold Medalist & “Miracle on Ice” Legend, to Be Keynote Speaker at Manufacturers’ Association’s 117th Annual Event

(York, PA) – Mike Eruzione, the Team Captain of the Gold Medal winning Olympic Hockey Team known as the “Miracle on Ice”, will be the keynote speaker for the Manufacturers’ Association 117th Annual Event. Mr. Eruzione’s keynote will share how to Inspire Teams to Win and overcome any obstacles and go for Gold. The 117th Annual Event will be held on Thursday, June 8th, at York College’s Waldner Performing Arts Center.

Mike Eruzione scored the game-winning goal against the Soviet Union, which advanced the 1980 U.S. Hockey Team to the Gold Medal Game where they beat Finland and won the Gold - accomplishing what was thought of as an impossible win for the USA. The win over the Soviets led announcer Al Michaels to make one of the most famous calls in history, exclaiming after the win, “Do you believe in miracles? Yes!" After the victory in Lake Placid, Mike Eruzione spent several years as a sports commentator for Madison Square Garden. In 1984 Mike joined the ABC Network and was a broadcaster for the Winter Olympics in Sarajevo, the Summer Olympics in Los Angeles and the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, as well as the 1992 and 1994 Winter Olympic Games. Mike is currently employed by Boston University as Director of Special Outreach. He continues to be actively involved with fundraising events for the U.S. Olympic Committee as well as several charitable organizations including Winthrop Charities.

The 1980 Olympic Team received many accolades after winning the Gold Medal, including being inducted into the United States Hockey Hall of Fame and voted the #1 Sports Moment of the Century by Sports Illustrated. Mike and his teammates had the honor of lighting the Olympic Flame at the Opening Ceremonies of the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City, Utah. In 2004 Mike and the 1980 Team were featured in the Disney movie “Miracle,” noted as one of the best sports movies of all-time.
