Move over Commonwealth Games, the real sporting action took place today at the 4th annual Seniors Olympics at Anglican Care in the Hunter Valley.
Presented by the Anglican Care Olympic Committee, the talented athletes are aged between 80 and 100 years – but don’t let their age fool you into thinking the games won’t be ultra-competitive! They represented their pre-selected countries in a series of highly contested events, including bean bag toss, lawn bowls, golfing, ten pin bowling, and Olympic trivia.
As the eyes and ears on the ground, Anglican Care lifestyle & wellbeing staff kept a keen eye on residents and consumers; for any performance enhancing supplements or any fellow competitor doping!
The games began at 10.30am, followed by the official medal ceremony at 1pm by NBN’s very own dare devil, Gavin Morris.
“We’re making sure that our competitors are eating well, getting enough rest and taking their performance enhancing supplements, but nothing illegal of course!” said Chef de Mission and Anglican Care’s Marketing Manager, Kylie Jacques.
“Anglican Care’s Seniors Olympics is a highlight in many of the residents’ calendars – this is a must win for our residents! But on the serious side, the Olympics are an opportunity for our residents to participate in physical activities as well as some fun and laughter which is always good for the soul and your health,” said Kylie.
Anglican Care is one of the largest and most innovative providers of community and aged care services providing excellent care and enhanced lifestyles to seniors throughout the Hunter, Central Coast and Manning regions of NSW.
