68 years old, Swim in Blue Seventy Suits (Reaction & Glide). Also Hoodie, boots and gloves. aAve 3 reaction full sleeves and short sleeves. Love them. Open water swimming races only. Do three to 4 in MN/WI. Point to LaPointe Lake Superior Swim biggest. Mid packer in 60-69 age group. Also swim Minoqua Mile and Zorba's Gull Lake Challenge 2.5 mile. I am also a member of Green Valley AZ Swim Club, Superior WI YMCA. Mostly swimming has kept me healthy and would like to foster more support for those that participate in open water swimming after the age of 60. Would like to see more recognition. Some races have age groups 70-100. Also some have age groups 60-69. Big difference between 68 and 60 physically then say 40 to 49. Finally it is a sport that people can learn at any age. Love the Blue Seventy Products.
