Feeling Young Again

We have written about maserful masters swimmer before (e.g., Don Korten, Ian Mcartney and Dr. Ladislav Nicek). There is another young one to add to the list: 77-year-old Richard Ellis who competed in and won the 800-meter swim at this year's Round the Sound Swim in Bermuda. Richard won the 60+ year old division as well as the 40-59 year old division and took second among swimmers ages 20-39.

A renowned American and World masters swimming champion, Richard has been successful all his life, "I am very competitive by nature. I wake up an older person, but after swimming, I feel young again. Everyone should keep active, mentally and physically, as much as they can." <
