Olga Kotelko – Saskatchewan’s Own Inspiration

kotelko_2010[1]Today’s inspiration was a legendary Canadian  – holder of more than 30 world records and 750 golden medals in athletics.  Events she competed in include long jump, triple jump, high jump, shot put, discus, javelin, weight throw and the 100-metres, 200-metres and 400-metres and 4 x 100-metre relay sprints.  At 91, she carried the Olympic torch in Vancouver in 2010 before the XXI Winter Olympic Games.

Olga graduated in 1941 from the Saskatoon Normal School, now a part of the Faculty of Education at the U of S, and began her career as a teacher in a one-room school in Vonda.  She didn’t begin her athletic career until after she retired.

Olga’s physical prowess wasn’t the most extraordinary thing about her. She was the subject of a book on longevity and scientific study at several Canadian and American Universities.  They discovered that her brain, rather than shrinking as is common in people over 65, continued to developed further.  That was credited to her continual training which kept her mind active and her body healthy.  Her edge was not in what she was born with, but what she did.

Globe Walkers Rocked the House!

65615720[1]Thanks Globe Walkers – you made our April event a huge success.  What an amazing turn out!  About 120 Globe Walkers gathered to enjoy a great program.  We learned how to keep the brain fit with fun and challenging brain games.  We followed with dancing en masse to the beat of Country Rock.  Finally we refueled our body and our brains with food and conversation.  What a great day!

Thanks to the Globe Walk Committee members who volunteered to help (as they always do) – Janet Barnes, Candace Skrapek, Ron Spizziri and Sheldon Kraus.  I also want to thank Pastor Steve Grove who helped in so many ways.

A special thanks goes to one committee member,  Kimberly Willison (and her assistants), who put us through our paces.  She was incredible!  Kimberly is the Senior Recreational Therapist with Forever in Motion.

Check out our Facebook page to see a video and photo of Globe Walkers enjoying this fantastic event.
