Senior Olympics: Locals headed to National Games

-A A +A

Ross, Williams and Marr are among the top senior athletes in U.S.

By The Staff

Los Alamos’ senior athletes will send three representatives to the National Senior Games this month.
The National Senior Games started June 16 and will continue through the remainder of the month in Houston. The Games include events in 19 athletic categories varying from golf to bowling to triathlon.
Individuals making the trip to Houston from Los Alamos include Jackie Marr, Inez Ross and Ted Williams.
To earn their way to nationals, athletes must qualify in both local and statewide events.
Marr is one of the most accomplished senior swimmers in the country and has numerous records to back it up. This will be Marr’s final year in competing in her current age category, 65-69.
She will be swimming six events at the Games. Her competition starts Tuesday and continues through Thursday on the campus of the University of Houston.
Marr has broken numerous world and national records during her senior swimming career, often when she moves up into a new age group, like she will next year. Currently, she owns four Huntsman Senior Games World Records, three of them dating from 2006 and another from 2007 – the 400 meter freestyle, 200 and 400 meter individual medley and the 800 freestyle – all of them in the 60-64 age category.
