Age of Champions is the uplifting story of a group of athletes—a 100-year-old tennis champion, 86-year-old pole vaulter, octogenarian swimmers, and a team of basketball grandmothers—all chasing gold at the National Senior Games. Meet these passionate and inspiring competitors and discover what makes them tick. Join Kevin Kohl, a PhD. student in the Department of Biology at University of Utah, following the film for a discussion of the physiology of aging and what the latest science tells us about aging, as well as the athletes in the film.
