Johnny Quinn

Author, U.S. Olympian

Hi, I am Johnny Quinn. I am a professional speaker and I travel the globe to inspire audiences by delivering thought-provoking and action-packed messages to businesses, teams and organizations. You will see me speak at a wide variety of events ranging from assemblies, banquets, businesses, campuses, churches, conferences, galas, meetings, seminars and other functions. The audience and age groups I speak to are just as diverse. I have relevant and impactful messages for corporate patrons all the way down to first graders. I did a TEDx Talk on Understanding the Olympic Mindset which I believe you will enjoy.


It has been a goal of mine for a long time to write and publish a book. On February 7, 2018, that dream came true as I released my first book, PUSH: Breaking through the Barriers. After the first 12 hours on, my book was temporarily out of stock, which was a pleasant surprise to see as a first-time author. Don’t worry though, PUSH is back in stock!


I have an athletic background which has opened the door to many opportunities. I am a U.S. Olympian in the sport of bobsled and competed at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. I have traveled the world with Team USA and competition has taken me to Austria, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Russia and Switzerland. Competing, living and interacting within different cultures around the world has provided a unique perspective, and ability, to connect with today’s diverse workforce.


The broken door from the Olympics, and meeting President Obama in the White House

During the Sochi Olympics, I got stuck in my Olympic Village bathroom and had to break down the door. The picture of the busted bathroom door has been retweeted over 27,000 times and seen by an estimated 10 million people around the world!

I also had the opportunity to tour The White House and met The President and First Lady with my fellow Olympic teammates.

I have been featured on ABC, CNN, CBS, Good Morning America, NBC Olympics, Fox Sports, TIME, USA Today and many other media and news outlets around the world. I even earned a spot to compete on the popular TV show, American Ninja Warrior!

When I am not on the road speaking, my wife and I own and operate the Johnny Quinn Insurance Agency, helping families all over the state of Texas with their insurance needs.
