Bob – The 93-Year Old National Sprint Champion

Posted in Pop Culture by larrycheng on July 19, 2009

Today, I ran in the New England Masters Track and Field Championships in Cranston, RI.  It was really fulfilling to get back out and compete in a track meet.  Despite doing pretty well myself, the clear highlight of the event for me was watching Bob run.  Bob ran the 100M, 200M, 400M and 800M races.  Bob is not your average runner – he is 93–years old and is a national champion in several sprint events for the 90+ age bracket.  Here is a video of Bob finishing the final stretch of the 800M race (immediately after which he lined up for the 200M).  Bob, you are my hero.
