An Olympian Among Us

Dr. Daniel O'Keefe, President of the Glens Falls Tennis and Swim Club recently personified the words of Norman Vincent Peale:

Live your life and forget your age

as he won the gold medal at the National Senior Olympics of 2007 on the third of this month. Playing in the blistering afternoon heat of Louisville, Kentucky just two days after being admitted to the hospital with acute hypertension, O'Keefe and his partner, Ed Gall, handily won the 85-90 year old bracket of the Doubles Tennis competition.

Recently Dr. O'Keefe was kind enough to share his medal with Todd Shimkus during a tour of the Club.

Bravo Dr. O'Keefe, bravo!
