Q5: Film shows success of seniors

STILLWATER, Okla. — A showing of the documentary film Age of Champions will be held Wednesday at the Payne County Expo Center. The cost for the movie and lunch is $20. Gladeen Allred, committee chair, gives more details about the event.

1 What is Age of Champions about?

The Age of Champions is the story of five competitors who sprint and leap and swim for the gold at the national Senior Olympics.

2 What do the athletes do? How old are they?

There will be a 100-year-old tennis champion, an 86-year-old pole vaulter, rough and tumble basketball grandmothers.

3 Why is the Stillwater Chamber of Commerce holding this event?

This is sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce, but the real sponsoring committee is the Stillwater Certified Retirement Committee. Stillwater is the first certified retirement community in Oklahoma.

 

4 Why should people attend this event?

I think that people should come out to this event to be inspired to continue to stay active throughout their lives, not only physically but to stay involved in the community as well. It’s important to have purpose and to remain active.

5 What does the event include?

The first screening will be at 9 a.m. if you’re a morning person. There’ll be the screening and the producer of the movie will be there to answer some questions and we will have an Olympian, an actual Stillwater resident, who will be there also. Then they can look at the exhibit booths that are related to senior adults and then have lunch. If you’re an afternoon person, you can come at noon and have lunch and see the screening of the film.
