MARYLAND - A 100-year-old Dallas, Texas man says he's on “the top of the world” after breaking five world running records for his age group during a championship meet last weekend. Orville Rogers, who served in World War II, now has 18 world records. He entered his first race when he was 90 and says his secret to success is his Christian faith, lots of friends and family and staying active mentally, physically and spiritually. See the video in the tweet below from USA Track and Field.
Rogers ran the 60-meter dash with a time of 19.13 seconds. He secured his other age group world records at the 2018 Indoor Championships in the 200-meter, 400-meter, 800-meter and 1,500-meter events.
