Welcome to a new episode of Office Hours: a podcast with Front Office Sports CEO Adam White and figures from the sports industry. This season is focused on athletes, both current and retired, who have found success in business endeavors off the field.
On today’s episode, we’re joined by two-time Olympic gold medalist Bart Conner. Conner is the only American male gymnast to win a gold medal at every level of national and international competition. When he’s not working at his gym or working on his other gymnastics related businesses, he’s an ESPN color commentator, a public speaker, and is deeply invested and involved with Special Olympics.
