This Thrilling Sprint Between A 99-Year Old Who Beat His 92-Year Old Rival, Proves That Age Is Indeed Just A Number

99-year-old World War II veteran and pilot Orville Rogers upset his younger competitor Dixon Hemphill, a retired businessman at the aged 92 at the USATF Masters Indoor Track & Field Championship early this month.

Rogers had to execute a late to surge to nip his competitor at the line by a mere .05 of second ahead of him! Hemphill finished at 18.00, while Roger at 18.05.

Hemphill went on to state that the finish was so close that he may have even won had he leant forward as he approached the finish line!

In fact, Hemphill and Rogers have developed a friendly rivalry since the time they met 4 years ago at a masters track meet. They run in the same heat since they are usually the oldest runners at the meet but compete in different age groups.

How did Rogers accomplish this feat?

Rogers accredits his success to visualising success in whichever race he partakes. According to him, the objective is to train hard and visualise crossing that finish line with consistency.

Although Hemphill is the faster of the two in the in longer distance events, Rogers claims that he has no competition. He just needs to show up, suit up, and finish the race to bag a medal.
