Arnold Schwarzenegger was born in Graz, Austria. Because he wanted to get into the local soccer team, he started to work out at age of 14. Gaining fame as a body builder he won the Mr. Universe title 5 times and the Mr. Olympia title 7 times. He used that as a launching point to become a huge Hollywood star and, later, the governor of California in 2003. Married TV journalist, Maria Shriver in April 1986 going through a high-profile split in May 2011.
Olympic Stadium, Munich. We were there the day 3 West Germans won gold medals, the place almost exploded. Saw Lasse Viren win the 5K and 10K double, saw Borzov win the 200, and saw 3 soccer matches (including the bronze medal match between the Soviets & East Germany) among other things. Also, sadly, we were there and turned away "that day". Needless to say, lasting impressions on an 11-year-old.
