Female athlete sets new shot put record at age 100

Delicious Digg Facebook Fark Newsvine Reddit StumbleUpon Technorati Twitter Yahoo! Bookmarks Print Reuters – Ruth Frith, a 100-year-old from Australia, competes in the women's 75+ shot put final at the World … Sun Oct 11, 10:42 pm ET
SYDNEY (Reuters Life!) – The oldest female athlete at the World Masters Games in Sydney has broken a world record in the shot put -- at the age of 100.

All eyes were on Ruth Frith, from Brisbane, as she arrived for day two of the World Masters Games, hoping to win gold in the shot put and feeling pretty confident as she was the only competitor in the over-100s category.

But her 4.07 metre (13 ft 4.2 in) throw on Sunday didn't just win her gold, but also broke a world record.

"As long as I didn't foul I was going to win it," Frith told Reuters Television.

The great-grandmother is also a keen hammer and javelin thrower and believes other pensioners should follow her example.

Frith trains five days a week, regularly lifting 35 kg (77 lb) weights. She doesn't drink or smoke and she doesn't eat vegetables either, claiming she hasn't liked them since she was young.

Frith was clearly a star of the World Masters Games -- an event which attracts about 28,000 athletes -- and despite her age, said she has no plans to retire just yet. She contested her first World Masters Athletics Championships at the age of 74.

The World Masters Games have been held every four years since they began in Toronto in 1985, according to their website (www.2009worldmasters.com)

Open to people of all abilities and most ages, the games are the world's largest multi-sport event, attracting twice as many competitors than the Olympic Games, the website said.

The main difference between the World Masters Games and the Olympic Games is that World Masters are open to people of all abilities rather than just elite athletes, with the emphasis on participation, the website added.

World Masters Games: Doping warning for competitors

(AFP) – 4 days ago

SYDNEY — Competitors in the World Masters Games will be warned about their anti-doping rights and responsibilities ahead of this weekend's start, Australia's anti-doping organisation said on Friday.

A record 28,292 competitors from 95 countries ranging in age from 24 to 101 will take part in the world's biggest multi-sport event, getting underway here on Saturday and running until October 18.

Ahead of Saturday's opening ceremony, the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA), said all competitors should familiarise themselves with the anti-doping rules that will be in operation during the event.

ASADA said it will offer education seminars and operate a trade stand at the Games to help develop competitors' and team personnel's knowledge and understanding of their anti-doping rights and responsibilities.

The International Masters Games Association (IMGA) said it has developed rules approved by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) that set out the general principles by which Sydney and subsequent Games organisers will conduct anti-doping programs.

ASADA chairman Richard Ings said many competitors at the Games may be taking medication, some of which will be prohibited under the World Anti-Doping Code.

"At an age when taking medications are a part of life, we recognise there are elements of masters sport which make it difficult to comply with all aspects of the World Anti-Doping Code," Ings said in a statement.

"If a competitor is using a prohibited substance they may be able to receive a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) before the competition to use the medication," he said.

Ings said ASADA doping control officers will be on duty during the Games to conduct tests on competitors as part of the new anti-doping program developed by the IMGA.

"Sport is a powerful cultural force right across the world and it?s vital we all play a part in preserving and protecting sport?s value for everyone, whatever their age," he said.

The organisers of the World Masters Games said they support WADA and ASADA in their opposition to the use of prohibited substances and methods by competitors to enhance athletic performance.

OOOOH!!!

That just makes so much sense! I get it now..
