Sprint kings

2 amazing Veterans

At 90+ I think you can call this extreme athletics!

90 year old sprint kings

Ilmari Koppinen and Emiel Pauwels are an example to us all…

Pauwels, the victor, also walked away with golds in the 200m, the triple jump and the shot put in the 90+ class, although he was the only person to compete in each of those events.

Koppinen, 95 years old and 11 months younger than his Belgian rival, was crowned over-95s European Champion for his performance with Pauwels and received a gold medal for his stirling efforts.

Way to go guys!
