Age of Champions

Director: Christopher Rufo
Running Time: 70 minutes

AGE OF CHAMPIONS is the inspiring story of five competitors who sprint, leap, and swim for gold at the National Senior Olympics. You’ll meet a 100 year-old tennis champion, 86 year-old pole vaulter, and rough-and-tumble basketball grandmothers as they triumph over the limitations of age. When one athlete loses a spouse and another is diagnosed with cancer, they’ve got to dig even deeper to make their Olympic dreams come true.

These special event screenings are sponsored in part by you by the Athens Foundation, the Appalachian Community Visiting Nurse Association, the Athena Cinema and Arts for Ohio.

Screenings will take place November 12-14th at 5:00 and 7:00 with a special matinee screening at 3:00 on Saturday, November 16th.
