Jaring Timmerman says the benefits of swimming have played an important role in his longevity and excellent health throughout his life. The 104-year-old Winnipeg swimmer made headlines once again last week when he officially became the worldâ€™s oldest Masters swimmer.
â€œThereâ€™s no doubt swimming has definitely kept me in shape,â€ said Timmerman, who amazes with his sporting achievements and overall sharpness.
â€œItâ€™s a sport that requires you to use all your muscles on your body. I thought it would be good for me and itâ€™s something to do. Itâ€™s fun to win all the medals and be able to give them to my grandchildren. Itâ€™s a challenge for me. Thatâ€™s why I do it.â€
