Age of Champions

Age of Champions is a PBS documentary that tells the story of five competitors who sprint, leap and swim for gold at the National Senior Olympics. In it, you’ll meet a 100-year-old tennis champion, 86-year-old pole vaulter, and hard-hitting grandmothers who triumph over the limitations of age.

A powerful resource for senior advocates hoping to start a positive conversation about aging in their communities, the movie is available free on-line during its premier (April 18-April 28, 2013). To watch it, click here. And please, feel free to share the link to the movie with others. Let’s keep spreading the word!
