Lou Billinkoff Aims to Break a World Record

Lou starting line95-year-old Lou Billinkoff celebrated his June 5th birthday in a unique way at the Canada Games Sport for Life Centre: sprinting the track in our fitness centre, surrounded by cameras following his quest to break the record for the 100-metre sprint in the 95+ age category later this month. The current record for his age category is 1:18.30 - Lou's best time is 28.29. In yesterday's test event, Lou ran a 14.48 in a 50-metre run, so it's safe to say he's well on track in his training! 

Yesterday's event was open to the media, where some great stories were told about Lou and his journey. You can check them all out in the links below:
