Senior athletes participate in a swim meet to prepare for a national competition this summer.

Seniors age 50 and over from Lima, Toledo, Perrysburg, and Michigan competed in backstroke, butterfly, freestyle, and relay events at the Senior Citizens Services Center. 

Wellness Coordinator, Donna Heckler says the event has been going on for about 15 years and it's great for the seniors to get involved in a friendly competition while they have some healthy fun. 

"The whole part really is the social aspect of competition. They are all very competitive but they are all so social and it's the perfect combination of both" says Heckler.
