99-Year-Old Breaks 50 Meter Freestyle Record

Submitted by: normalfreak2 6 months ago in Lifestyle Misc Sports


If you’ve ever needed proof that age is just a number, look no further than 99-year-old Brisbane swimmer George Corones – who’s just smashed a world record at the Commonwealth Games trials.

The Albany Creek retiree, who turns 100 in April, completed the 50m freestyle in an epic 56.12 seconds at the Gold Coast Aquatic Centre on Wednesday night.

Mr Corones swam alone in race, with the crowd erupting as he demolished the previous record for the 100-104 age group by almost 40 seconds.
