Don Pellman competed in six track and field events this month at Stanford when he took part in the Senior Olympics.
Pellman ran the 100-meter dash in 24.14 seconds last weekend at Stanford. He also jumped .99 meters in the high jump and cleared 1.00 meter in the pole vault.
Those numbers might not sound impressive until you learn that Pellman is 95-years old and he was competing in the Senior Olympics. By the end of the meet, Pellman reached rock star status for his many achievements.
He is the current world record holder in several track and field events. By Saturday night, he had four more gold medals circling his neck.
