WINNIPEG, CANADA – Jaring Timmerman, 105, is the world’s oldest Masters swimmer.
“I will be the only that will have a world record at 105.”
Timmerman already has four records in a younger age bracket – 100 to 104.
“It’s a challenge…that’s what it is…a challenge.”
Challenging? Yes. But, Timmerman isn’t stopping anytime soon.
He started competitive swimming at age 79 and swims twice a week to stay in shape.
“I think always having a goal and helping him achieve something probably has given him longevity,” said Timmerman’s son, Don.
And, to our ageless swimmer — keep on swimming!
