Arthur Gilbert of Somerset, England doesn’t let his age stop him from racing triathlons.
A 90-year-old has become Britain’s oldest triathlete after breezing through a 250 meter swim, 10K bike ride and 2.5K run in one hour, 20 minutes and nine seconds.
Despite his age, Arthur Gilbert sticks to a rigorous training regime, going to the gym twice a week, cycling 25 miles every Sunday and swimming 50 lengths of his local pool every morning.
His training paid off when he crossed the finish line at the Burnham-on-Sea Triathlon in Somerset, England on Sunday.
Arthur said: “It went really well. I enjoyed every minute.”
