SHERWOOD PARK, Alta. - Florence Storch held the javelin high with her right hand and balanced herself with the other by gripping her walker.
After two throws, the 101-year-old athlete called it quits for the day but still took home a silver medal.
"I didn't put that much energy into it," the centenarian said Thursday at the Canada 55-Plus Games in Strathcona County, east of Edmonton.
Still, she said, it "felt good" being out on the field.
"Better than sitting in my room doing nothing."
