101-year-old javelin thrower goes for the gold in Canada

Posted:
ALBERTA, CANADA (CBC NEWS/CNN) -- A 101-year-old woman will compete in the Canada 55+ games this week.

Florence Storch will go for the gold in javelin after winning the silver medal last year in the 55+ Games.  She learned javelin 15-years ago when volunteering for the games. After finding no one had signed up for javelin this year, she decided to compete in the event.

"You're not too old to compete!" she said. "Because age is just a number anyway - so I don't have much fussing around about my age."

The games start on Wednesday.
