New PBS Documentary for University Libraries – Age of Champions

Ray Balhorn

You’re invited to watch the new free PBS documentary Age of Champions

Age of Champions tells the story of five competitors who sprint, leap, and swim for gold at
the National Senior Olympics. You’ll meet a 100-year-old tennis champion, 86-year-old pole
vaulter, and hard-hitting grandmothers who triumph over the limitations of age.

The filmmakers have partnered with organizations including the National Institute on Aging,
Osher Center, and President’s Council on Fitness to share the entire documentary for free
during the film’s national online premiere, April 18 – 28, 2013.

The Washington Post called the film “infectiously inspiring” and theater audiences across
the country have fallen in love with its light-hearted take on growing older.

Invite your family, friends, and colleagues to watch the film for free by forwarding this
email, posting on Twitter, and sharing the link on Facebook.
