Age Is Just a Number: What a 97 Year Old Record Breaker Can Teach Us about Growing Older
What a 97 year old record breaker can teach us about growing older
Retired dental surgeon Charles Eugster rekindled a love of competitive rowing he'd neglected for most of his adult life at the age of 63. He took up bodybuilding at the age of 87. And at the age of 95 he started sprinting for the first time in his life, becoming World Champion at 200m indoor and 400m outdoor. He is a world record holder for his age group in a number of sports, and has 40 Gold Medals for World Masters Rowing.
In this book, Charles shares his journey and his passionate belief that growing older needn't slow you down. And he shows his readers how taking on new challenges, learning new things, and improving your body as it ages is not only fun, but rewarding for the individual, and beneficial to society.
Charles Eugster is a 96 year-old retired dentist from the UK who holds multiple records (including world records) in his age group for athletics and a variety of other sports.
