When you think of world record holders in track and field you probably don’t think about Canadian Olga Kotelko. Her competitive quest has taken her from Argentina to Austrailia and she has won numerous medals. She is truly a remarkable 91 year old woman.  You have got to watch this video! You’ll be amazed and inspired for sure.  I sure was! 

Note: There is a short commercial before the spotlight video, but it’s worth the few seconds that it takes to get to the good stuff! Does she inspire you at all? Let me know by leaving a comment below.

    woo-hoo. Wow. This woman is amazing. I almost fell on the floor when I saw what she can do at her age. Proof that growing older doesn’t have to mean falling apart. Thanks for this Jeanette. I feel inspired!

      Hey again Sarah, 🙂 Yes, she’s most definitely wonderful. I hope that more people watch this video. What an impact she makes. I hope that I’m that capable when I’m in my 90’s. I’m so glad to have all of you to kick up my heels with on a weekly basis. We’re on the right track for sure!

      Oh goodie! I was hoping that some of you would take the time to watch this video. I just loved it so much! I know that you’re in pain lately, but I will NOT let you give up, Camille. You’re too awesome! I’ll see you soon to offer my support. Lots of love back to you.
