Class of 2017 Personal Best Athletes

There’s an additional definition of “personal best” that senior athletes exemplify, and that anyone can achieve. It’s not about a peak moment in time or distance in sports; it’s about overcoming challenges and obstacles, staying motivated throughout your life, and inspiring others by your example. This results in greater longevity and a healthy, active lifestyle – and that is your Personal Best!

 

 

 

“THE GREAT EIGHT”

In 2017, NSGA celebrated the 30th Anniversary of National Senior Games. There were eight athletes who had competed in every competition since the first Games in 1987, which is an incredible accomplishment and a testimony to the benefits of staying active to enjoy healthy aging.  As a result, we dedicated the Personal Best Class of 2017 to “The Great Eight.” You won’t want to miss reading every one!
