2009 Summer National Senior Games: August 7th-10th

The Midpeninsula Community Media Center interns have been covering the 2009 Summer National Senior Games happening at Stanford University, CA. Approximately 10,000 seniors, aged 50 to 100 years old, participated in soccer, swimming, basketball, tennis, and many more events. The two-week-long celebration of life and health has changed many peoples' views on the elderly and sports. Some of the more inspiring stories tell of 90-plus-year-old people destroying stereotypes such as 94 year old track and field competitor Lillian Webb. She and others help to prove that keeping in shape is a vital part of living into your hundreds.
