91 Year Old U.K. Dentist/Athlete Seeks Olympic Bid

Dentist Tony Chivers
How cool is this?
A dentist who scooped a bronze medal at the British Empire Games back in 1950 is making his own Olympic bid for 2012.

Vice president of the BDA Benevolent Fund, Tony Chivers, has been nominated by the charity to be a torchbearer in next year's London Games.

The former athlete and dentist is now 91 but back in 1950 bagged a bronze medal in the three-mile run at the Empire Games held in Auckland in New Zealand.
Really cool.

I hope to be alive at 91, but to be an Olympics participant?

Guess I better to continue to run and diet.
