George Blevins, 100 

George Blevins is a bowling champion at age 100.
        "I've been bowling regularly for 93 years” he says proudly. “I don't think anyone else can say that." 
        A native of Kentucky, George traveled to Louisville at the beginning of July to participate in the 2007 National Senior Games. He won the past two National Senior Games singles tournaments for the over 75 age group — first in Hampton, Va., four years ago and then two years ago in Pittsburgh, Pa. George successfully defended his title and came away, once again, with a gold medal. He was the only 100 year-old bowler and one of two centenarians participating in the games.

        Attracted to bowling at the early age of seven, George continued to bowl while a student at Purdue University, as well as during his long career as special assignment engineer for International Harvester. One year, he proudly tells, he was the captain of five different teams.               

           George says he considered himself to be just an average guy. That was until he reached his 90s and continued to be active, doing things 90+year olds don’t do ordinarily. George still drives and regularly bowls two to three times a week. He credits clean living and a "steady diet of 10 pins" for at least part of his extraordinary longevity and robust health.
