The 60 Plus Association invites you to watch the new PBS documentary, Age of Champions, for free from April 18th – 28th, at ageofchampions.org/premiere. Age of Champions tells the story of five competitors who sprint, leap, and swim for gold at the Senior Games. You’ll meet a 100-year-old tennis champion, 86-year-old pole vaulter, and rough-and-tumble basketball grandmothers as they triumph over the limitations of age.
“All of the characters in the film have the conviction that the best in life still lies ahead of them. They show us how we can grow older with grace and good humor,” says Age of Champions director Christopher Rufo. Age of Champions premiered at the prestigious Silverdocs Film Festival and has been hailed by the Washington Post as “infectiously inspiring.”
Founder and Chairman of the 60 Plus Association, Jim Martin, personally participates in the games by playing basketball for the Virginia Creepers, and has said that “staying active keeps you physically and mentally sharp.”
Watch the full documentary with your fellow members, friends and family at ageofchampions.org/premiere.
