It was a great day at the 2017 National Senior Games at Birmingham, Alabama's Samford University. These games are held every two years and I was lucky enough to win my second consecutive gold medal. Just like in 2015, the competition was of a high standard and the competitors friendly. This is the second of the four big national meets I have this year. And my second gold. Two for two. Let's keep the momentum going!
