Oldest Swimmers in Town
At 87 years old most people are thinking about slowing down and making the most of their retirement, not learning how to swim.
At the age of 97, Ethel Metherell is hailed as one of Britain’s oldest swimmers, still making a splash every week at her local swimming pool.
At 93 years-old you may think that Bill Mintram would have thrown out his alarm clock years ago, but you’d be mistaken. This veteran swimmer has been getting up at 5:15am for the past 30 years to make sure he is first in the pool.
