Still making a splash at 93
According to the International Swimming Hall of Fame, where Tom has been a member since 2007, he developed his can do it mentality from his mother and father, who survived the Armenian Genocide. A positive attitude is a vital component in keeping us stronger and fitter for longer. It is absolutely the time to stop listening to any age stereotypes that say, "you can't!" Tom's story is not extraordinary. We can all keep on learning and challenging ourselves at every step of our lives. This is just another example of what can happen when we say, "we can and we are".
