This summer, we had the opportunity to photograph two Octogenarian Athletes for Prevention Magazine. This is Flo Meiler — an 83 year-old track and field star based in Burlington, Vermont. To say we were impressed by her is a complete understatement.
Right after the sun came up, Flo began warming up with a few stretches and jogs before pole vaulting, soaring over hurdles, throwing the javelin and shot put, and ending with the long jump. We also conducted a short interview with Flo about what she does to stay fit, how she stays motivated to reach her goals, and how staying active has allowed her to do just about everything she wants.
We could not have been happier with how the motion and stills turned out. Flo was truly an inspiration. And the photo editor's at the magazine were just as pumped.
