91 Year Old Canadian Track Star

I stumbled upon an amazing story on the BBC news site today about Olga Kotenko. Olga is 91 years old and started her track career when she was 77 years old. 77 YEARS OLD!

She's the only woman to compete in the 90yr+ age group in the long jump, and I'm amazed to think someone above the age of 70 is still competing at track and field, and long jumping nonetheless! Her favorite event? The Hammer Throw. The frikkin hammer this woman bionic? Amazing, simply amazing...she is an inspiration to me, if I can continue competing in my latter years I'll be a happy man.
