Charles Futrell is a triathlete. You may never have heard of him before.
This past weekend, Charles completed the Central Florida Triathlon Series # 2 sprint in Clermont, FL. He completed the event in an outstanding time of 2:18:38.
While that time might not seem all that inspiring, keep in mind this fact: Charles is 90 years old. He is the oldest man to complete a USAT sanctioned triathlon. (Read more here).
I am so impressed by this guy. I can only hope that when I’m 90 years old that I’ve still got enough energy, stubborness, and gumption to be running triathlons. What an achievement!
