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.

We’ll say!

And, to our ageless swimmer — keep on swimming!
