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!
