Emiel Pauwels, 94, represents Belgium. Ilmari Koppinen, 95, runs for Finland. Depending on which news organization you consult, they ran either 60 or 100 meters, either of which is amazing. Place your bets.

It looks to me like it's 60 m, which is just shy of 70 yards. I wonder what the key muscle that determines speed, at that age, is. [Like, should I be doing calf raises, now? Squats? or just stick with the pizza slice curl?]
