Worlds Oldest Triathlete

This superfit pensioner prefers the swimming pool to the bingo hall – because at the age of 90 he is the world’s oldest triathlete. While most people his age prefer a gentle stroll, thifty Arthur Gilbert has raced in more than 40 gruelling 500 metre swim, 12-mile bike ride and three-mile runs since 1989. He developed a passion for running when he was younger – competing since the 70s – but only took up the sport seriously 20 years ago entering his first triathlon proper aged 68.
