Vikings Punter Chris Kluwe Is Also a Gifted Speedreader

He read the entire Chronicles of Narnia series when he was four, and we said, ‘O.k., we’re going to have to keep him from getting bored.’”  –Ron Kluwe, father of Chris Kluwe

When I think of famous speedreaders, I think of John Kennedy, Teddy Roosevelt, and Jimmy Carter.  Presidents, not punters.  But Chris Kluwe, punter for the Minnesota Vikings, is also a speedreader.  Chris says he stumbled into punting, as his boyhood was defined by science fiction and fantasy literature, not by football.  He was able to read a lot more Ray Bradbury books when he discovered speed reading.  Chris estimates that it takes him 15 seconds to read a page of text.
