Julian Myers Said, “Ambition Is The Key To Longevity”

Julian Myers ("Nighthawks" t-shirt), at 93, told jeff noel longevity requires ambition.

Ever wonder what motivates seniors to stay healthy? Me too. So I spent most of this week in St George, Utah at the 25th Huntsman World Senior Games, to validate my deductions. Over 10,000 athletes all aged 50 and over. Many were world-class survivors.┬áMany were world-class athletes….for example…

Bobby Whilden, 76, twice this year bettered the legendary Payton Jordan’s M75 100 meter record of 13.72 by running 13.68 at the Penn Relays in April and 13.67 at the outdoor nationals in late July. On Wednesday Whilden smashed his own pending mark with a 13.55 at the Huntsman World Senior Games in St. George, Utah. The wind was a legal 1.9 meters per-second. His time just missed the 13.54 world mark by Germany’s Bruno Kimmel in 2009.
