Shelley Goertzen is a master athlete competitor - here's her story!
I had the pleasure of attending the Americas Masters Games in Vancouver from August 26 to September 4 this year. This was the inaugural year for the Americas Masters, which is a subset of the World Masters Games which have been held every 4 years since 1985. And it was a great success!
Thousands of athletes came from all over North and South America, as well as from Europe and Asia (I guess no athlete is turned away) to compete in one of 24 sports, in age categories from 30+ all the way up to the age category of 100+ in Athletics.
