Pasadena Senior Center Games Through July 15

Excitement is building for the 2018 Pasadena Senior Games/California Senior Games Championships, a series of nearly 30 competitive sporting events ranging from archery to volleyball now through July 15 for athletes ages 50 and older.
Athletes are encouraged to visit pasadenaseniorcenter.org and click on Senior Games 2018 to register for competitions in Pasadena, Arcadia, Burbank, South El Monte, Glendale, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Simi Valley and Van Nuys.
“These remarkable athletes are shining examples of the benefits of an active lifestyle that embraces health and vitality,” said Akila Gibbs, executive director of the Pasadena Senior Center.
Among the many medalists at the 2017 Pasadena Senior Games were Robyn Utu for the discus throw in the category of women ages 50 to 54; and Donald Hubbard for the 100-meter swimming freestyle in the category of men ages 90 to 94.
“In 2017, my first year as director of special events at the Pasadena Senior Center, I witnessed first-hand the commitment, friendliness and sportsmanship of the athletes,” said Annie Laskey. “While many are serious athletes who compete to win and regularly take home medals and sometimes break records, others are sports enthusiasts who sign up because they enjoy the camaraderie and it keeps them active.”
